This year, Junior Landcare is celebrating 25 years of opening children’s hearts and hands to landcare.
To help Landcare celebrate, we’ve teamed up with Junior Landcare ambassador, Costa Georgiadis, for a special letter writing campaign that’s calling on kids to share what they love most about the environment – and the steps they’re taking to protect it.
“The more you engage with nature, the more you appreciate it; and the more you appreciate it, the more likely you are to want to protect it,” shares Costa.Costa Georgiadis https://juniorlandcare.org.au/love-letters-to-the-land
Whether you write your letters as a class, school or youth group; individual, early learning centre or family – we want to hear from YOU!
We also want to help you share your ideas and the actions you’re taking to care for the natural environment because we know children and young people have the power to positively influence those around them.
To help get your creative juices flowing, we’ve created a curriculum-linked learning activity available in the Junior Landcare Learning Centre, as well as special letter templates you are free to download. You can choose from a pre-filled template for younger learners or a blank template for older students.
You can also stand the chance to win a visit from Costa to your school or youth group by uploading your letters and/or a photo of yourself and/or your school/class holding up your ‘Love Letters to the Land’ throughout Biodiversity Month (September 2023). * One lucky entry will be randomly selected to receive a visit from Costa himself. Entries close October 20, 2023
