Following the bushfires, global pandemic and the cancellation of public planting events for the first time in 25 years, we're encouraging everyone to share a photo connecting with nature or simply hugging a tree. The evidence shows it will make you feel better:
Australian landscapes have been devastated by the 2019/20 bushfire season, in addition to ongoing drought. A commitment to caring for our ecosystems through regeneration is more important than ever.

To build a brighter, greener and more resilient future where humans live in harmony with nature, it is up to us to take positive action that will heal both our planet and ourselves.
