Natureweavers are honored to be mentoring this program for ‘middle childhood’. This period of childhood – between 7-12 years – sees the ongoing development of self, as unique and separate, alongside the development of an increasing connection to nature – this duality is fertile ground where the seed for lifelong earth stewardship behaviour can be planted. It is a crucial stage of childhood development from an earth sustainability perspective and we are compelled to mentor children of this age at this time with content that we know – practically and intuitively – and love.
