Connect with Nature Workshops for Mum and Kids
We are living in a world where we experience climate changes and possible future threats. These threats created us to think about living in an eco-friendly lifestyle. And we know our children will be the future of this world. They will make the decisions and they will be the policy makers. This is why it is important to teach children on how to live a green lifestyle. We believe that sustainability starts with children!
When we teach the children on how to live a sustainable and ecofriendly lifestyle, they will grow with environmental friendly habits and knowledge which helps the entire world.
How to teach your kids sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle?
It starts today.
Teach them how to connect with nature in every possible way. Surround them with green activities which help them to take responsibility in their actions. Each step they take today will help them to grow as responsible citizens who love nature.
This is where we came up with our Connect with Nature workshops. Started as a good cause by Dr.Parvathy Subhadra, MD of Green in Future Pte Ltd, below are our workshops created with children in mind. These workshops will create awareness about green lifestyle while connecting children to the nature with hands on activities.
