Amongst It is an initiative of the Nature of SA project and sponsors new and varied ways for people to connect with nature. The small-scale grants based program focuses on projects that create positive connections with nature and celebrates how important nature is to the identity of South Australia.
Connection to nature is an important part of who we are as South Australians. We talk about it in different ways, but nearly all of us have places we hold as special, whether that’s big, iconic nature like the Flinders Ranges and Kangaroo Island, our local leafy suburbs and backyards, or our unique capital city surrounded by parklands and nestled between hills and sea.
Amongst it is about promoting creative ways to pay attention, slow down, and build an everyday connection to nature. We want to amplify the great work already happening, help kick off new projects, and celebrate all of it so that we remember to prioritise nature personally and publicly.
