Get involved


Big change starts with small steps. What will your next step be?

We are excited to again be running Change Makers - an annual FREE event aimed to facilitate residents who are interested, or already involved, in environmental action to come together and build networks in the community.

This event will be led by HumaNature Connect, who promote the link between nature, health and wellbeing as well as inspiring creative and effective environmental initiatives. The event will include facilitated workshops as well as thoughtful and action-based discussion on some identified key themes of sustainability.

It’s set to be a rewarding and fun opportunity to build networks, get involved in environmental action and to learn more about what’s already happening in your area. There will also be delicious, environmentally conscious and locally sourced food, supplied by Real Food Catering , available.

Change Makers will be held at the Old Shire Council Offices in Heidelberg on the 8th June from 6.15pm. Places will fill up quickly so please reserve your free spot via trybooking or
