Re-establish Diversity and Inclusion in Environmental Locations
The project “Re-Establish Diversity and Inclusion in Environmental Locations” consists of outdoor activities, seminars, and workshops designed to teach participants that nature is inherently diverse and inclusive. Due to historical oppression of people of colour people and women, there is a subconscious bias against minorities that many people are unaware of. Discrimination, which is frequently observed in outdoor spaces, is a myth created by humankind.
To demythologize this false narrative, participants will engage in exercises focusing on emotional awareness, mindfulness, and outdoor activities, all of which will help them understand that nature is inclusive. Environmental locations are inherently accessible to all, something will be shown through the exhibition in Molos, Limassol.
Participants will gain an understanding of the importance of truly inclusive environmental locations through their own curiosity, innovation, and non-formal educational research. They will come up with innovative ideas, competitions, exhibitions, fun, perfectionism, as well as reality to discover by themselves that empathy, trust, and humanities can be fostered through nature, and these are the true weapons against racism and discrimination.
