Carly’s life and pursuits are so inextricably linked with the wildspace around her, that she spends most of her life covered in fallen leaves, creekside mud, ticks and dandelion blossom, with a knife, flint and tinder around her neck, foraged wild greens and vegetable seeds lining her pockets and groups of children scattered about her. An earth warrior in heart, mind and soul, Carly quietly creates the conditions for relationships between people and wildspaces to grow and thrive, inspiring earth stewardship from infancy through to adulthood. Carly is the founding Director of Natureweavers, an award winning forest school on the Sunshine Coast. Nestled into the sunrise side of Black Mountain, Carly mentors children, families and adults and trains educators, teachers and those who live, work and play with children in practical and theoretical approaches to learning in, with and from nature and has been doing so since 2010. Carly is an accredited Nature Pedagogue with the International Association of Nature Pedagogy, and she delivers practical sessions to inspire and encourage adults to learn in, with and from nature alongside children. Carly is an also environmental advocate with 14 years experience in the non-government, community and education sectors. She has previously worked for Oxfam Australia in their International Emergencies Department, contributing to the re- establishment of sustainable communities in East Timor, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and the Pacific Islands. Carly managed the development and implementation of the Oxfam Australia Environmental Sustainability Plan, which directed and inspired the agency towards environmental sustainability in its operations, programs and advocacy. She is currently study a Masters of Education, with research interests in how childhood nature play transforms into earth stewardship behaviour into adulthood. She is also constantly on the lookout for the perfect walking stick. www.natureweavers.com.au firstname.lastname@example.org
