Champions and Changemakers


Conservation SA's Champions and Changemakers project aims to build the capacity and resilience of groups and people in the environment sector in SA.

We’ve put together a great suite of resources to help you as effective environmental champions. Whether you’re in a professional role or volunteering your time, Champions and Changemakers can help increase your impact and focus on the things that matter.

A team of generous professionals and community members in the environment sector have shared their knowledge and wisdom on four important themes:

Each theme is covered by a video and a handbook packed with knowledge, tools and inspiration to help maximise your environmental impact.

Sustaining your group

Many conservation groups are under-resourced and reliant on a shrinking pool of volunteers.

'Sustaining your group' deals with a range of issues that can be challenging for groups, including group structure, strategic direction and succession planning.

Looking after yourself

It’s important to look after yourself in the short-term so that you’re able to contribute to the environmental movement over the long-term. Self-care is fundamental to our ability to be champions for the environment and make a real difference.

This resource looks at preventing and addressing burnout, dealing with environmental grief, and self-care strategies for environmental professionals and volunteers.
