Eco-art therapy in education

Course Dates: 
5.-9.6.2023
2.-6.10.2023

As modern people of the 21st century, can we still draw upon the “wild” nature? And do we have anything to offer in exchange?  

 

In response, we have developed a training course for all teachers, careers counsellors and other professionals who support people in their development. We will introduce the concepts of eco-psychology and sustainability and show how to use these concepts practically in school teaching and personal development courses.  Our aim is to provoke a discussion about the relationship between modern man and nature, we will talk about the concept of “sustainable well-being” of the individual as well as the whole society.

 

Over the course of 5 days, we will try out group and individual activities to develop teamwork and communication skills, strengthen self-confidence and self-knowledge, or enhance well-being - all in wild and urban nature. We will play, create, develop all the senses and discuss. We will explore what we can learn about ourselves through experiences in nature and how to build on this for further development.
