Human existence depends on a healthy, balanced, and sustainable planet, but our very existence puts pressure on the globe and all who live on it. The needs for contribution and growth of environmental awareness are the top two priority needs to be fulfilled as we have reached a critical point for the existence of our species. The rent we pay for our stay here on earth is counted by caring for our surroundings and really protecting Mother Nature. We live in a holistic world where everything is connected whether we want to believe it or not. There exists a universal consciousness that connects all the creation together and unless we care for each other and especially our home which is mother nature, then our survivor on this planet has an expiration date.

This course offers the opportunity to establish a strong connection with our surroundings and includes a variety of activities and techniques which reinforce that connection.

Environmental awareness is a global issue so anyone of any specialization could participate.

The course will take place within Limassol District and will include outdoor activities. There will be visits to beautiful landscapes on Troodos mountain as well as a day trip to cape Akrotiri and the beautiful beaches of Limassol.
