The #BlueCarbonArmy is a multisector initiative educating Australia’s corporate executives in climate change literacy, while empowering them to build a sustainable future and value Australia’s coastal ecosystems. By swapping their suits for gumboots, and providing an educational immersive experience into coastal wetland research, our program connected 300+ executives (from 20+ organisations) with nature and science, strengthening their environmental knowledge and commitment to sustainability.
