Education

We believe a fair and colourful future starts at the roots of education. Contact with nature is more essential today given that children are spending nearly 8 hours a day using entertainment media and only 6 percent of children ages 9-13 play outside on their own.

We are at risk of losing an entire generation’s appreciation for how nature works and what it needs to remain healthy and productive. Therefore we offer workshops in schools to children from 6-12 years old in which they get ‘lessons from the Jungle’ and playfully explore the beauty and wisdom from nature. We inspire schools to provide children with more opportunities to connect with nature and get acces to holistic learning. So that they understand their relationship with nature and their responsibility towards their environment and become the green leaders our world so desperately needs. We believe that this kind of education has to be accessible for everyone; therefore we offer our program at every school.

Conservation activist Jane Goodall: “If you wait until children are in middle school or even high school, it becomes very, very hard to get them involved. But the little ones, they love messing about in the earth, planting trees, seeing things grow.”

We get inspired by Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, the Children & Nature Network, The Green School, Down to Earth and many other great organizations stimulating the connection with nature.
