“While the birds are chirping beautifully and the wolf is hovering on a leaf, you should pause your language studies now. Know that the bird and the wolf teach the child better and more. You just keep silent.” Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi.
We are not beings separate from nature, polluting or protecting it, above it. We are children of nature, we came out of it and are connected with it in every breath. All our food comes from nature, our bodies are fed from the great body of mother nature. If we do not provide opportunities for our children to experience that they are ‘nature’, if they are not connected to the earth-nature, they will neither receive the benefits of nature nor feel responsible for the environment in the long run. Nature conservation, the nature of the relations of children and young people with nature, as well as institutions working for conservation; it also depends on how they are connected to nature or not.
