Health & Well-being through Nature-based Methods

Training Course

24-31 May 2022 | Kostelec nad Orlicí, Czech Republic

This training course aims to develop practices for personal health and well-being through nature-based methods (rooted in ancient wisdom, natural laws and strong experiential learning), as well as community building experiences.

Expect nature, expect community!

"Health & Well-being through Nature-based Methods" is a training course for youth workers, young people and change makers active in the field of non-formal and experiential learning with focus on personal and community development. This training course aims to develop practices for personal health and well-being through nature-based methods, as well as community building experiences. Nature is seen as a teacher, which activates new perspectives, solutions, and tools for young people so they can create authentic and sustainable changes in their lives, their communities and professional work. The training offers methods that are rooted in ancient wisdom, natural laws and strong experiential learning.
