SUMMARY:

Several European and American studies show, that the time children and youth spend in nature, has decreased radically over a ten year period. This being now as little as 4-7 minutes daily unstructured play outdoors, while their time in front of a screen indoor is up to 7 hours a day. At the same time teenagers experience rising stress symptoms, fear of achievement, fear of missing out on social media, fear of fitting in. This can leads to loneliness and poor self-esteem.

Here are some reasons why we will spend a week of learning ”In the Wild”:
Nature is a perfect setting for non-formal learning.
Nature is a place to recover, find balance and serenity.
Nature is an efficient pedagogic tool to focus on group dynamics, relations, well-being, courage, reflection, curiosity, tenacity, stamina.
Nature teaches you to master certain skills. (Amygdala has proven to relax while hand-crafting).
Outdoor activities can help prevent stress symptoms related to fear of achievement and performance – something largely seen among teenagers.
Nature works against meaninglessness and loneliness – it works for self-esteem and sense of belonging.
Nature makes it obvious to focus on environment: UN goals of sustainable development: reuse, reduce and recycle.
