The first NECTAR Partner Activity took place on Wednesday 19 June at the Australian National Botanic Gardens. Our international group with native speakers of Chinese, Dutch, Spanish, Turkish, French, Afrikaans, Mongolian, German, Catalan, Japanese and English met on a sunny autumn afternoon. We enjoyed a stroll and a warm drink together. Tips and phone numbers were exchanged, making this a very successful first Partner Activity.
Our second Partner Activity was on Friday 16 August. Ngunawal Elder Wally Bell guided us around ANU Campus and talked about sites of cultural importance. A very informative and interesting talk, which was followed by a stop at a café to exchange our own stories.
