Description

R U OK? Youth in Nature

Spending time in nature is known to have significant benefits on mental health and well-being. This exciting event will be held in the Royal Botanic Garden in partnership with R U OK? to promote understanding around the benefits of connecting with nature, and connecting with people through conversation for good mental health.

The R U OK? Conversation Convoy along with Ambassadors are coming to the Garden for an exciting full-day program. In the morning, students will be joined by one of Australia's leading Crossfit athletes Khan Porter for a fun outdoor fitness session. There will also be a music session in the afternoon with up and coming singer songwriter James Van Cooper. Throughout the rest of the day NSW high-school students will partake in a variety of exciting and immersive workshops lead by Red Room Poetry poets, Community Greening and Botanic Gardens Aboriginal Education staff.

Selection of Students: There is a limited number of places at the R U OK? Youth in Nature Day, so each school can send a maximum of 10 students plus accompanying teachers/supervisors.

Students who attend will be R U OK? Champions on their return to school. We hope that they will pass on the messages and skills that they have learnt on the day, to help grow a healthier and more resilient school community.
