Humans are an integral part of Earth’s ecosystem. Despite the individualistic view in Western society today, we’re interlinked with everything around us. Feeling this sense of deep connection and belonging to the greater whole is essential for our own well-being. That’s why we support youth workers in helping young people reconnect with nature and create a thriving future for themselves and planet Earth.

Our mission

How did we start our journey?

Belonging to Nature Team

Our journey started during COVID-19. The pandemic made us all question our lives and how we live them. Of course, everyone experienced it differently. For some people, it meant a welcome time of rest, while others suffered from mental issues and the impact on their social lives, including many young people. 

As trainers in non-formal education, we wanted to help youngsters with their struggles. That’s why we took a deep dive into our human needs and the crucial connection with the ecosystems around, between and within us. This resulted in a vast collection of educational resources, a manual of activities as well as a training programme that youth workers can tap into.
