“It was great to hear about all sorts of interesting things, from place names to fire-management and recreating artifacts and tools”

52 Climate Actions
The 52 Climate Actions partnership formed in 2015 after the International Permaculture Convergence declaration to the Paris Climate Conference. Nine organisations from a range of countries including Australia came together to promote permaculture-based solutions to climate change. The purpose is to educate about climate change,  show people the best responses to climate change, and to inspire people to take action by providing practical steps. 52 climate actions allow you to take a new step every week for a year. If you are not sure where to start you can explore four key topics in detail, commit to climate action, reduce your carbon footprint,  assess your climate risks and think differently through actions that are either simple, every day, community or global in focus.

Unless we are willing to encourage our children to reconnect with and appreciate the natural world,
we cant expect them to help protect and care for it.
