  • Description


    We are a young team of 4 entrepreneurs sharing the same vocation. To create and improve the educational system and give children opportunities to explore and develop their passions, talents and skills.

    Now we are building our own outdoor school/ forest university in other words our Base!

    We created an NGO for Personal development for non-formal, informal, art and experiential educational programs and activities for children and families. We are working for more than 5 years in the field in order to provide essential practical knowledge and skill to the youth and also to families who experience the necessity for a more meaningful, lucid and conscious lifestyle in balance with nature.
