Naya Nature Foundation provides outdoor, nature-based education, to connect children with nature and their inner nature, all year long, through all seasons and weathers. As a team of passionate, highly-trained mediators, we act like true passers of knowledge and love for nature, trying to counterbalance the fact that modern childhood has moved indoors.
Our pledge is to make children feel at home in nature, so they become well-adjusted and deeply happy in the world they live in. We believe that the children who learn to love nature today will become the adults who will care for it tomorrow.
Benefits from a nature-based education at school are huge: real-world-based learning, sensory integration, critical and holistic thinking, creativity… It develops academic skills and life-skills more and more required. And it lays the foundation for a healthy, balanced and effective environmental education.
We want to allow existing educational institutions to have their children benefits for nature-based education with the means at their disposal; taking into account their context.
Naya Nature offers training courses, guides, talks, workshops, podcasts… for educators and educational leaders to implement nature-based education in their institutions, in the long term.
We raise awareness about the stakes of nature-connection / nature-based education?, we introduce and train educators to use the 7 Connection Gateways pedagogy © and we share and develop good practices in the field.
