CHILDHOODNATURE

JOIN US


The Childhoodnature Collective is an interdisciplinary group that provides a space for researchers, educators, artists, writers, ecologists, philosophers and a host of others to come together to share and explore the value of unpacking and disrupting current views on childhood and nature. The new concept of childhoodnature aligns with a posthuman turn in educational and childhoodnature research, where the child is nature, and is associated with the recognition that humans are having an unprecedented planetary impact on Earth in this time of the Anthropocene. If you are interested to join contact us on: natureplay@scu.edu.au
