Atelier of Nature
Knowing and understanding nature is vital for the future citizens of our world as it evokes respect and empathy developing attitudes of care and love.
Complex encounters and transformations in nature offer a wealth of proposals to the curious observer. In fact, many scientists are emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies in their quest to design sustainable solutions.
Encouraging children and adults to slow down, wonder and perceive through all senses, the atelier of nature is a space to appreciate and discover the often ignored magic of reality. Engaging with the beautiful environment around us offers a multitude of experiences, both scientific and aesthetic, with extraordinary learning potential.
