Nature play goes beyond play spaces – it addresses the needs of the whole child. It considers how we guide and foster student agency, connectedness, wellbeing, and belonging. This full-day workshop explores nature play at a much deeper level that transcends beyond physical spaces and examines what it means to ‘belong.’ It focuses on how we view children as capable and competent, how we design learning experiences with children, how to set up successful programs like bush kindy, and connections to Country through art and language. These elements form an important part of belonging.


This workshop will feature a keynote from the fabulous Lisa Burman, author of a new book titled A Culture of Agency” which is available in July. 


Tickets: SOLD OUT

Taking Risks for Wellbeing is a call to action. It asks educators, policymakers, health practitioners and services that support families and children to be bold in their approach toward nurturing and maintaining children’s wellbeing. Through provisions for risk-taking in play spaces, as well as in their approach to teaching and learning. Stepping outside the accepted norm to champion wellbeing as a priority.  


It means delving deep into what wellbeing looks like for the whole child. Facilitating action to change or improve school approaches to teaching, learning and play to foster a culture where wellbeing can thrive.  


The Conference will feature two well-known and prominent keynote speakers: Tim Gill (UK), renowned author, speaker, consultant and global advocate for children’s play and mobility; and Madhavi Nawana Parker (Aus), Director of Positive Minds Australia, who is one of Australia’s leading experts on wellbeing and resilience.
