Symbiosis will invite 30 artists & youth workers from France, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands & Portugal for an exploration of their emotional relationship to the environment, engaging in symbiotic green initiatives, mutually beneficial to themselves and our world. Brace yourself for a transformative experience of co-living & co-creating!

Who are we looking for?

You are a creative, educator, social worker, youth worker, trainer? You want to expand your toolbox? Engage in ecological projects ? Deepen your emotional link with nature? You would love to experience co-living in a creative laboratory with fellows coming from Europe and the world?

Symbiosis is for you then!

What we offer

Symbiosis explores an innovative learning method channeling emotional intelligence to foster personal engagement in green initiatives.

It is a training. You will explore the use of emotional intelligence tools, embodied practices, nature based learning and collective intelligence to help yourself and others, to better connect to nature and your/their emotions, fostering mental health and ecological action. We invite you to experience a set of methods and practices rooted in permaculture, eco-construction, embodied work and collective creativity. Then you will get support to share what you learnt with others!

At the end of our time together a public event will give you a chance to storytell the magic of your projects and share it with the local rural community. By going digital we also look further to reach out your personal and professional networks across countries to raise awareness about emotional health and ecological engagement in youth work.

Last but not least, Symbiosis is an inclusive experience for social connection and intercultural european dialogue taking place in Cornac, a picturesque French village surrounded by eco responsible farmers and inspiring artists and artisans from the local rural community. As art is no longer meaningful without sustainability, we opt for sustainable food and reasonable energy consumption. Let’s also reflect together about local actions!

Learning methods

Our methodology is based on experiential learning (learn by doing it!), interdisciplinary exchange (widen your panel of knowledge!) emotional and collective  intelligence, outdoor education and non-formal education principles!

Participants will learn through testing designed methods and reflecting upon the experience. Using a participatory approach, we encourage the exchange of experience between the participants and with the local community, fostering peer learning.

We are looking for diverse participants profiles to foster co-learning and enrich everyone's projects with the expertise and perspective of others, to help you develop mesmerizing projects!

Trainer team

Anne Merlin is a creativity explorer. Whilst studying visual arts and interaction design in France, she discovered the magic of creativity mixed with collective intelligence and social action. Excited about the whole thing, she co-founded Nomadways (www.nomadways.me) in 2014, where she started crafting and animating workshops mixing performing and visual arts, to explore new ways to co-create and learn in Europe and beyond. In the meantime, she lived in Greece, Brazil, Seychelles, Portugal and a few more countries, experimenting with ever more creative ways to interact and discover one another in multilingual or non verbal settings. Along the way, she collected myriads of tools & methods for collaborative creation, nature-based learning, emotional intelligence, specializing in storytelling, team dynamics and project design using creativity, movement, emotions and stories to foster well-being, cooperation & social action.
