This year, Earth Hour is urging Australians to #Connect2Earth, so that we can all work towards better understanding and appreciating the values of biodiversity and the current critical condition of our home and our planet. Being aware means that we can all take actions to protect our biodiversity and nature, it means we can live more sustainably, and expect the same of businesses and governments.

The Sustainablility Team is helping raise awareness of the #Connect2Earth by running a free Biodiversity Tour for staff and students on Parkville Campus. The tour covers information about the University’s biodiversity values and initiatives as well as interesting facts and stories about the campus. You will also visit the System Garden – originally created as a teaching garden to show all the different groups of plants – the only one of its type in Australia!

  • Meeting point: Gate 4 (cnr. Monash Rd and Swanston St).
  • Please arrive 10 minutes before the start of the tour.
