EcoVoices project is an idea Karina Donkers (Stockdale) developed using her deep ecology training to reconnect people to each other and to the Earth. This project aims to bring awareness to some of the impacts of climate change and start conversations about how we can be a part of the solution. Nature has its own stories and voices; this project will aim at bring these to the forefront of the discussion.
Through gathering stories from the voice of the voiceless, running workshops and activism through art, EcoVoices aims to highlight our interconnectedness and inspire people to action.
Come hear about this idea and how Karina aims to achieve this during her travels of Australia. EcoVoices website and social media coming soon!
Where: Nest Coworking- 829a High St Thornbury
Testimonial- ‘Karina is a passionate young woman with a message to share – that the wild world is under threat and we can be a voice for the voiceless. More than that, that our lives can be made so much the richer through opening to conversation with nature. This project EcoVoices is a powerful and brave offering. I look forward to hearing the stories that Karina will catch of from those specialising in work with vulnerable species that are rapidly diminishing.’ Claire Dunn, author of My Year Without Matches.
