National Tree Day
Australia Tree Day is an opportunity for you to do something positive for your community and the environment by reconnecting with nature. National Tree Day started in 1996 and since then more than 3.8 million people have planted 24 million trees and plants and the event is still growing.
This year, National Tree Day is 29 July 2018 and School Tree Day is 27 July. Planet Ark oversees the initiative and for the past four years, have commissioned research on the implications of contact with nature on an individuals’ health, wellbeing and development. Research shows that time in nature helps us thrive as individuals – physically, intellectually, emotionally, mentally, and ethically. The results present a compelling business case regarding the value of nature and the multitude of benefits associated with green time including enhanced learning, concentration, healing, relaxation and recovery, to name a few.
Whether at home, at school, at work or in the community, there are many ways to get involved. Join thousands of people in making a difference to your community, fostering a love of nature and creating positive environmental change.
