Intrepid Landcare recently visited Bunbury to inspire young people to join environmental action.

Intrepid Landcare visited Bunbury earlier this month to spark creativity in the way young people are engaged in environmental action. 

Environmental leaders from across the South West, including representatives from the Green Army and Leschenault Catchment Council attended the free workshop.

Intrepid Landcare facilitators Naomi Edwards and Megan Rowlatt shared tips and ideas on how to co-design projects with young people and their community. 

Local leaders got the chance to bust assumptions about the lack of young people volunteering in Landcare and discover the benefits of volunteering to design some inspiring projects. 

South West Catchment Council communications and engagement manager Sharon Upston said the workshop prompted all to reflect on what initially attracted them to get involved in Landcare. 

The workshop was supported by the council through funding from the federal government’s national Landcare program.
