Nature Play WA’s second annual Children and Nature Conference returns to Fremantle for 2017.

Join some of the world’s pre-eminent speakers on the positive impact of nature on children’s health, wellbeing and education during this packed-program event. 

Attendees will:
- gain new insights into the connection between nature and positive childhood outcomes, 
- learn practical ways to engage the corporate and political sectors in the global movement to reconnect children to the natural world, 
- and network with peers who are interested connecting new generations to nature. 

The conference is the only event of its kind held in Western Australia and follows from the pioneering work done by Nature Play WA that has been embraced nationally and internationally.

The Children and Nature Conference is for educators and early years care providers, health professionals, parents, conservationists, land managers, state and local government employees and anyone with a keen interest in reconnecting children with nature for the benefit of our kids, our community and the environment.
