Nature Connect

Nature Connect has grown from its environmental education roots, re-branding from Cape Town Environmental Education Trust in 2021, but without losing its focus which remains: Changing Lives through Nature. Operating across the spectrum, from crèche to career, they continue to invest in people by creating multiple touch-points that present, and nurture, connection with nature and each other, dreaming that every child can enjoy an outdoor camping experience and that every adult can  care for themselves, others, and the world we share. They are working hard to unlock innovative mechanisms, including financial approaches, to address challenges associated with biodiversity loss. These include expanding the offering of opportunities for individuals to pursue a career in the Green Economy. 

The R270,000 raised last year through the 2021 Cableway Charity Challenge was a welcome financial donation.  These funds continue to support children from low-income communities on their seven-year journey (Grade 6 to matric) of learning and leadership through our Conservation Leadership Project. These future leaders experience nature across South Africa, growing their knowledge base, their practical skills, and their passion for life and all living things.
