Biodiversa is offering 26 places for people coming from 10 different countries to participate in our next training course: “Connecting with Nature”, in the beautiful valley of Valdediós (“valley of Gods”), in the region of Asturias, north Cantabric coast of Spain, from 18th to 24th May 2015.
If you can travel to the training course from Albania, Armenia, Austria, Germany, Latvia, Moldova, Portugal, Romania, Serbia or Spain, it’s your lucky day! If not, pass this call on to some friends and keep an eye on Biodiversa’s blog and Facebook: there might soon be an opportunity for you.
This training course will be aimed at helping young people living in urban areas to re-connect with their natural environment. We believe that if young people learn to appreciate nature, they will live happier and become more responsible citizens. This has been verified by a recent study by the RSPB: “when young people are connected to nature, it has positive impacts on their education, physical health, emotional wellbeing, and personal and social skills, and helps them to become responsible citizens”.
The objectives of this training course are:
- To help young people connect with the nature around them,
- To practice and encourage enjoyment of nature,
- To develop empathy for creatures,
- To develop a sense of oneness with nature,
- To develop a sense of responsibility for the environment.
Conditions for participation:
- Over 18 years old at the time of the training course,
- Travelling from any of the 10 partner countries (see top paragraph),
- Speak English fluently,
- Ideally come from an urban area,
- Willing to spend a week inmersed in nature.
