Show Notes

Today we present the Nature for Everyone session from the Nature Festival held in Adelaide between the 25th of September and the 4th of October this year. Nature does indeed have something for everyone but is it within everyone’s reach? In this panel discussion we look at the diverse value of nature, some of the barriers South Australians experience in accessing it, and showcase some of the programs that are working to make it easier for everyone to connect. Our guests today are Ben Trewren, Youth, Inc. Experiential Learning Manager, Youth, Inc. is an Adelaide-based learning alternative, designed specifically for young people aged 17-24 who are looking for something a bit different; Yvie Eglinton, Dept of Environment and Water’s National Parks Access Coordinator; Tricia Curtis, who looks after Trees For Life’s Regenerate and Stepping Stone Programs; and Harry Spurrier from Neurohero Foundation, an organisation that aims to improve the lives of teenagers with debilitating neurodegenerative disorders through virtual reality video games and at-home sustainable agriculture. The discussion is hosted by Christy Spiers, Network Facilitator for the SA Urban Food Network, and Adaptive Communities Coordinator for Green Adelaide.
