Project type

Selected participants

The reasons behind these findings and why some people and nations experience greater levels of connection to the natural world are complex, but what is simple is the reason it matters so much.

High levels of connection with nature have been shown to support better mental and physical wellbeing, while people who feel closer to nature are also more likely to behave in environmentally friendly ways, whether that be recycling more, buying organic or driving an electric vehicle.

It is no exaggeration, then, to say that increasing our population’s connectivity to nature could have enormous benefits for both people and planet.

As part of the project, we will conduct workshops:
– ecological: creating your own cosmetics, flower bombs
– culinary: the impact of herbs on health, from farm to table – slow food cuisine
– photographic: creating photos man close to nature “we are one”
– sightseeing trip Książ Castle, Wojsławice Natural Arboretum, ecological farm, a trip to the forest

The result of the project will be an exhibition of photographic works showing us and nature in symbiosis and unity showing the benefits of spending time among nature.

Youth exchange is for everybody who are interested in the topic, want to travel, learn and meet new people and cultures from the age of 15 – 19. Leaders can be older than that.
