Take it outside, stay connected in nature.

nature pact

Time in nature heals, enlivens,
calms and connects us all.


This strange year we’ve seen people all over the world find space, fresh air, comfort and connections in nature. People everywhere are realising the benefits and joy of getting their daily Nature Dose wherever, however they can.

The People and Parks Foundation wants everyone to experience the health and wellbeing benefits of connection in nature each and every day. We’re calling on everyone, young or old, near or far, to make a #NaturePact and sign up to a daily Nature Dose for a month – that’s 30 minutes in nature a day, every day for 30 days.

What is a Nature Dose?

Easy – it’s you, in nature, noticing nature. Whatever you’re doing – at work, rest, play or commute – take it outside, stay connected in nature.

Take a walk and notice your neighbours’ plants, street trees, birds, the local park. It’s amazing where you’ll notice nature.

Next step?

Take it outside, stay connected in nature! Your mind and body will thank you.

  • Sign up to make a #NaturePact with a family member, friend or colleague. If you’d like to share your experiences being in and noticing nature, you’ll have the chance to win some beautiful nature-based prizes from our valued partners. Stay tuned for special themes and challenges.

Breathing is something our bodies do automatically - and something we rarely focus on. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Delve deeper into your sense of feeling this week during your #NaturePact. Take a moment to stand and breathe. Fill your lungs with air. Let your stomach expand with this breath. Then gently exhale out through your mouth. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
By grounding yourself through your breathing, you will feel less stressed and more at peace. ⁠⠀

When you're out on your #NaturePact today, take a moment to pause where you are, close your eyes and listen. What are 3 things you can hear in the nature surrounding you? Are they animal noises, the wind in the trees or a flowing river?⁠⠀

Our final theme of our #NaturePact is all about focusing on our 5 senses, and allowing nature to ground us to be present in that moment.⁠
⁠
We often focus on one thing when we're out and about, but this week is all about taking the time to stop and engage as many of your senses as possible. ⁠
⁠
We still have some nature-themed prizes up for grabs - this is your last chance to sign up to make your own #NaturePact via the link in our bio. ⁠

Here is your answer for our game of guess who...⁠
⁠
I am an Echidna!⁠
⁠
Congratulations to everyone playing along that got it right - pretty amazing to think that these little guys are one of only two monotremes. ⁠
⁠
It's not often that you spot them in the wild, but with some patience you might get some luck.⁠
⁠
Have you ever seen one in the wild? Maybe you've seen one during your #NaturePact?⁠

We're not going to lie - this week's #NaturePact theme is probably one of our favourites! ⁠
⁠
We're focusing on all things animals and wildlife. When you're out in nature this week, take the time to look for animals of all sizes, and listen to the noises that they make. ⁠
⁠
Where are you going to go this weekend to explore wildlife? It could even be as simple as watching different bugs and insects in your backyard. Let us know in the comments below 👇 ⁠

As the saying goes - you never forget how to ride a bike!⁠⠀

Cycling is a great way to explore some hidden trails of nature, and is also a great way to get active. Whether it's a leisurely ride to take in some sights on your #NaturePact, or a trail ride in the bush, there are sure to be some beautiful colours and shades you can snap for this weeks theme of colours and shades in nature!⁠⠀

Always Was, Always Will Be. ⁠
⁠
During NAIDOC week, we recognise that First Nations people long ago made their own #NaturePact to notice and care for Country. ⁠
⁠
The nature we know in Australia today has been and continues to be nurtured by Traditional Owners, their knowledge passed down through many generations over 65,000 years. NAIDOC 2020 invites all Australians to embrace this history, which dates back thousands of years.⁠
⁠
We invite you to make your own #NaturePact and notice and care for nature to uphold Traditional Owner wisdom that when we care for Country, Country cares for us. ⁠
