We are living in a time of tremendous global change. Many of us are feeling called to act. It is clear that the current paradigms of the industrial growth model are both unsustainable and not meeting the needs of its citizens.
The formal education system is creaking under the strain of an irrelevant curriculum and our children are receiving instruction rather than a true education, striving for goals and targets that fail to address the body/mind/spirit potential within each child.
One of the most effective ways to inspire and enrich ourselves, our children and communities, is to find our way back to engaging wholeheartedly with the natural world. Recent research reminds us that nature is key to our well-being, physical, spiritual and mental health.
Our job as environmental educators therefore is to cultivate this ‘nature connection’ in creative and meaningful ways.
Therefore, we invite you to become one of the new generation of change-makers through the Call of the Wild programs.
