Strategic Partnership: Belonging to Nature

Did you know that being in nature or even just observing nature through a window can reduce stress, anger and fear? Nature has a very big influence on our body, emotions and mind, so it is very important that nature becomes the best possible friend. This strategic partnership project will help youth workers and young people to strengthen their sense of belonging to nature and in this way work on their mental and physical wellbeing while nurturing the nature at the same time.

In May 2022, we finalised the first out of two training courses that will bring youth workers closer to nature and nurture wellbeing at the same time. Our training course was held in Slovenia, while the next one will happen in Iceland this Summer.
