This project aims at contributing to reconnect young people to the natural environment. Developing a connection with nature has proven to have positive effects both on physical-mental wellbeing and on the adoption of sustainable behaviors.

We will come together in a place surrounded by woods to share our experiences and re-think our relationship with nature, reflect on the duality of the human-nature concept, question conventional solutions to environmental issues and feel the benefits of a closer relationship with the natural environment.

We will be 30 young people, gathering in nature during 8 days, to experience together a deeper connection to ourselves, others, and the natural environment, through Non-Formal Education, nature-based methodologies, deep ecology, mindfulness, practices, permaculture and hands-on activities.
