Ideas take root after an inspirational event
Enviroschools facilitates opportunities for students to connect with one another and also to their place. With research showing that mindfulness and being in nature can mitigate anxiety, the value of this kind of interaction is clear. An event hosting renowned primatologist and conservationist, Jane Goodall provides a catalyst for students to strengthen these connections.
