Our Three Pillars
As one of the first independent providers in the area of experiential and movement-orientated outdoor activities in Luxembourg, we offer a wide range of programs that are tailored to the needs of your group. As you already know, our company name consists of three seperate words, namely ‘nature · movement · development’, which simultaneously constitute the three main pillars of our work. Let us briefly explain you why we think those three aspects have such an importance for all our programs:
Nature has always been an important part of our lives. Unfortunately, the value of nature as a learning and experiential space has constantly been impoverished due to current tendency towards modernisation and technologization in our society. Certainly, there are a lot of different things that can’t be learning in a classroom, behind an office desk or in other indoor settings. This is the reason we try to incorporate the natural environment as much as possible into our programs and activities. Acknowledging nature as a mentor and feeling it’s the positive influence during our programs – this is why ‘nature’ is our first pillar.
Nowadays, it is no secret that physical movement has a lot of benefits for our health. Besides the health factors, physical movement offers a lot of possibilities for new body experience, especially in a pedagogical setting. It allows us to work on a whole range of different topics like communication, interpersonal trust, body control, teamwork (and many others). Furthermore, physical movement allows for first-hand experiences, that can trigger profound changes in an individual. Besides physical movement, we also want to move other, more abstract, structures. To break free of old routines through unknown situations and get to know a different side of oneself – that is why ‘movement’ is our second pillar.
The combination of nature experiences and (physical) movement in our programs allows us to initiate valuable educational processes that go beyond the mere conveyance and reproduction of knowledge. For us, education means changing the way individuals perceive their environment and how they cope with potential future challenges or difficulties. Our programs and activities leave enough room for our participants to grow on a social, physical and/or psychological level – this is why ‘development’ is our third pillar.
