Rather than teach children about nature, inspire them to connect with nature…
We believe that children will not be motivated to care for our planet unless they have a deep love, respect and connection with the earth. And how can we love nature if we have never experienced it? Therefore, our Programmes aim to help children understand how we are connected to and dependent on the natural world, as well as to inspire in them a commitment to caring for their environment.
We also believe that experiential education is a far more effective approach when it comes to the environment. Therefore, all our Programmes aim to give children opportunities to experience nature, rather than read about it in a textbook. This approach also enables children to learn practical skills which they can implement at home, such as how to grow their own food.
