WE ARE WILD ME
Theory and evidence have emerged in favour of the notion that humans possess the biological need to affiliate with natural systems and processes, particularly during the important formative years of childhood, and that this relationship is critical for health, productivity, physical well-being and mental health of children (Kellert and Wilson 1993, Kellert 2005, Louv 2008, Children and Nature Network 2009).
Wild Me organises and creates wild play programmes. Free, natural or wild play implies that children can play outside in the forest and in open spaces. The spaces are inspiring and the children are free: there are trees, branches, stones, gardens and mud. Children set their own goals, analyze their own risks, take their own responsibility, have their own adventures and learn from them.
This natural form of play allows and provides a space for all aspects of life, and to become aware of how everything is connected. Children have the opportunity to experience and understand how we affect and are affected by nature, our environment and the people around us.
"For Wild Me, Nature is not only a fascinating world inhabited by infinite beings of all shapes and characteristics imaginable; it is not only the beauty and fuel of our senses; it is not just our home. It is also where we find ourselves, where freedom and possibilities are given, and where we learn the meaning of all things in life."
