The rewilding of our environments can only be possible if we first allow the reconnection with Nature within ourselves by re-learning how to engage and co-exist within natural systems. The priceless resource for stimulating such an engagement is education. Education based on love, creativity, freedom, trust and ecological responsibility. ‘The Tree & The Water’ aims at creating a space for learning based on such foundations.
Another big focus of our project is nature-connection education. By creating volunteering programmes and our first educational centre we aspire to create opportunities for everyone to learn about deep ecology, permaculture, nature conservation and community living.
The educational centre will be a space where the community can gather and have access to resources and materials connected to the objectives of the Association. Additionally we aim to organise workshops and provide other facilities which will be used for educational purposes (e.g. seed bank, library, wildlife observatories).
