Nature Freedom Announces New Board of Directors, Enhancing Inclusion and Representation


Brisbane, Qld, 09/02/24 — Nature Freedom, a leading organisation dedicated to creating inclusive and accessible outdoor activities for people with disabilities and the broader community, is thrilled to announce its newly appointed Board of Directors, effective January 2024.

Since its inception in 2017, Nature Freedom has been committed to breaking down barriers and fostering community engagement through nature-based activities. By co-designing all their programs with individuals who have disabilities, the organisation has consistently delivered experiences that are truly inclusive and reflective of diverse needs.

The recent renewal of the Board of Directors marks a significant milestone in Nature Freedom’s journey towards greater inclusivity and representation. With the incorporation of more members who have lived experience of disability, the Board is now better equipped to understand and address the unique challenges and aspirations of their client base.

The new Board members bring a wealth of expertise and perspectives to Nature Freedom’s operations, enabling the organisation to further tailor its initiatives to meet the evolving needs of the community. Their collective vision is to continue fostering a culture of accessibility and empowerment, where everyone, regardless of ability, can thrive in the great outdoors.

Nature Freedom extends its heartfelt gratitude to outgoing Board members for their dedication and service, and welcomes the incoming members with enthusiasm and anticipation for the positive impact they will undoubtedly bring.
