Enhancing Sensorial Connectedness

Getting in touch with a local ecosystem

In today’s world, it is becoming increasingly important for individuals to develop a deeper understanding of their connection with the environment. Enhancing sensorial connectedness is a transformative approach that invites students to engage with a local ecosystem, fostering a sense of interdependence and appreciation for the natural world.

This tool provides students with the opportunity to observe and reflect upon the interdependence of ecosystems and their own place within. It immerses students in sensory experiences and exploration while collecting materials from their surroundings.

The act of gathering materials not only serves as a means of hands-on exploration but also sparks contemplation. In this way, students not only deepen their individual connection with the environment, but also lay the foundation for meaningful discussions and collective understanding.
