Pilot in Overijssel

At the beginning of 2021, the Rethinking Nature pilot started in Overijssel in The Netherlands, with the support of the Province of Overijssel, and for this we went looking for 100 students who would first like to try the platform. Students have also developed routes for Overijssel, podcasts and made agreements with green managers in urban and rural areas.

Project in Gelderland

In 2022, the Rethinking Nature project was carried out in the province of Gelderland, with support of the Province of Gelderland. The project has been carried out with close involvement of young people, including the National Youth Council. A total of 10 activities in nature have been organized by and for young people. The project was concluded with a Life for Nature event in Sonsbeek Park in Arnhem. This resulted in a Life for Nature Declaration, which was presented to the Regional Minister of Nature of the Province of Gelderland, the State Secretary for Health, Welfare and Sport and the national coordinator of the European Year of Youth 2022.

Giving back to nature  

Rethinking Nature also wants to give something back to nature. Partly due to the massive use of nature in the corona time, nature has come under even further pressure. The platform therefore offers various possibilities to give nature a helping hand, often even literally.
