World Environment Day 2024, with the focus on land restoration, desertification and drought resilience, reflects our lived reality.

We have some amazing First Nations’ stories, with the multitude of stories and wisdom that our First People offer us through their connection to Country. 

From our oceans to our everyday environments, you’ll find a story that will suit what you’re doing in your learning space.

As a parent, educator or public librarian, why not delve into this wonderful collection of stories with your youngsters?
