Inspiring the creation of nature poems by students and teachers.
The POEM FOREST Prize supports positive climate action by inviting students and teachers to write and publish poems inspired by nature. For every poem received a native tree planted will be planted on Dharawal Country in Wollongong to increase canopy cover, create habitat and strengthen communities for generations.
What's inside this resource?
Our curriculum-aligned POEM FOREST Learning Resource is designed to support students and teachers to find inspiration before composing nature poems. It is packed with poems, creative activities and case studies that enrich outcomes across sustainability, First Nations cultures and histories, English and Science.
