Kids in Action Program 2020


Super excited to be diversifying my portfolio of projects in 2020 with the Kids in Action program here on the Sunshine Coast.

I have been involved with the Kids in Action program for many years and am excited to continue with the great work this program has achieved over this time.  In 2020, I will be teaming up with Karen Shaw from Brush Turkey who was the original contractor for KIA and Mandy Bottrell who has been instrumental in the success of the program for many years in her position with Envirocom.  Together, we are the new contractors for 2020-21  and are focused on strengthening and developing the program further to ensure First Nations knowledge and engagement are at the core of this program.

2020’s Theme is We are Botanica: Plants for healthy bodies, minds, spirit, and planet.

The program will engage over 300 students from schools that are located on Jinibari and Kabi Kabi/Gubbi Gubii lands within the Sunshine Coast Regional Councils footprint.  Students will engage with First Nations mentors to learn more about the world around them with a particular focus on Botanics.  Teachers will be supported to build their knowledge, pedagogical approaches, professional practices and relationships with First Nations Custodians to build a shared understanding of our world.  Check out these clips from 2019 to see what this program is all about, you will not be disappointed.



If you are a teacher or parent of a child on the Sunshine Coast, please get in contact with me to receive program information about this premiere Environmental Education program.  More information can be accessed via and by watching the two clips above.
