One of my Indigenous friends in Australia, Dean Kelly, tells us that ‘Nature is the greatest teacher.’ I am sure that people who live close to the land or water would sound their agreements with Dean.
Our urban world removes us from regular contact with forests and mountains and rivers and oceans. Our urban world removes us from intimate understanding of the natural processes that give us clean air and water, and healthy soils and flourishing natural environments.
We can change that! We can benefit now from nature whilst living an urban existence.
This 60 mins session will identify the benefits of being in nature. The research is clear – there are many good things about being in natural environments. One is that being in nature strengthens our capacity to learn. Forests, rivers, oceans and mountains help us feel good and enable us to learn more effectively.
Join me. Find out what the research says – it will make you keen to get out there into nature!
This session is for Parents & Young people & Educators.
