COVID-19 lockdown

A community of like-minded people

Are you beginning to feel the strain of living in a COVID-19 lockdown?

The AEGN offers a community of like-minded people who you can reach out to.

Members have shared values and a love of our natural environment and the systems that support life on earth and have the capacity to take action to protect our world through funding.

Our fortnightly catch-ups have been a great way to chat with colleagues, hear about important funding options and be part of the growing action on a climate led transition – so join us on Tuesday 30 June.

We are looking at options for hosting more Zoom events in the future, on issues such as sustainable agriculture and Indigenous land and sea management, so that you can stay connected with your colleagues from around the country and discuss issues that are important to you.

I am also wondering how you are going? Are you beginning to feel the strain of living in a COVID-19 lockdown? As you will know, experts are warning of the mental health implications of living a more isolated life – away from friends, family and our colleagues.

Beyond joining our community, there are lots of options for you to take care of yourself, your loved ones and your colleagues so do make use of them. Beyond Blue encourages us to:

  • Stay connected to loved ones
  • Do things you enjoy
  • Stay healthy
  • Dodge the panic
  • Reach out

I encourage you to reach out to your colleagues and friends at the AEGN and I look forward to seeing you at one of our events and hearing from you soon: amanda@aegn.org.au
