NATURE Mediation course

You are a Primary teacher or an educator...

…convinced of the benefits of learning with nature throughout your curriculum, but:

If you are here, it’s because you know that teaching with nature is good for your student’s cognitive development and ability to focus, to provide real world, inquiry-based learning, to bridge the gap with environmental incentives… Yes, the benefits are huge, but at the same time, teaching with nature can’ t be improvised (at least not at the beginning).

What if you could find help with all of this and get empowered to offer your students meaningful lessons in nature? What if you became the Nature Mediator in their lives?

FOR WHOM IS OUR TRAINING?

Our Nature Mediation course is aimed at all teachers in primary schools and educators, who want to:

  • develop a deep and long lasting connection between children and the living world
  • enrich their pedagogical approach with real-world, inquiry-based learning
  • support children into developing essential life skills for today and tomorrow
  • meet their programme expectations, with nature-based teaching
  • match the PYP curriculum expectations
  • give meaning to incentives for pro-environmental actions and nature protection

    Our training course is available in the Netherlands, France and upon demand Belgium and Switzerland.

"Nature-based education should be evident (...) The effect is immediate and the results are obvious too. We observe spontaneous cooperation and immense curiosity among the public."
- Bertrand Spadilliero, Head of after-school care Fédération Léo Lagrange - Attended to the course in 2020-2021

Training path

Our training course is designed to offer you an opportunity to really change education, to take your first steps as a mediator between childhood and nature.
