The Go Slow for a Mo’ Program is brought to you by The Connective: seeking to research and apply the benefits of nature 

Our research is confirming what we have all known for a long time

NATURE

has a profound effect on our wellbeing

But it has to be more than just a walk in the park

Proven benefits include:

Our Go Slow For A Mo' trail program is designed to help people spend more meaningful moments in nature. It's fun and easy and can be installed in any local park, national park, learning space, workplace or green space.

Our business model reflects the belief that everyone should have access to, and enjoy the health benefits that nature has to offer. We keep our operation costs down to scale our trail delivery up.

We acknowledge that we meet, play, work and live on this wonderful country of Australia, which has been occupied by Aboriginal peoples for thousands of generations. We thank all of the caretakers past and present, for their tending of land, waterways and cultures. We pay our deepest respects to the Elders: past, present and emerging.
