ACTIVE-ACTION IN NATURE is an experiential learning project for young people, which seeks to bring about a profound change in their attitude towards the environment and sustainability, through experiencing the relationship that exists between ourselves, others and nature.

The program is 15 days’ length, organized as following:

  • 2 days – Cultural Orientation in Madrid.
  • 9 days’ – Environmental program in the farm in El Tietar (Extremadura).
  • 4 days – Homestay and cultural inmersion in Trujillo.

The project takes place in Madrid, at the Farm Tomillo Tiétar, 2 hours from Madrid, in the region of La Vera, an area rich in natural beauty with enormous environmental and social diversity, and in Trujillo, one of the oldest and historical towns in Spain. The project offers community service experience in the nature, at the same time as a space for young people to reflect on their life decisions outside of the speed of the city, whilst discovering new perspectives and experiencing of a deeper sense of self, other, the natural world.

Through living in nature, sleeping in the forest and observing natural systems we can learn from nature’s gifts. Through listening to the stories of farmers, elders and social activists we can understand the role humans play in shaping our world. And through observing, collaborating and dialoguing with ourselves and with each other we can understand and feel that we are part of the ecosystem of life on earth.

The project starts in Madrid with a 2 days cultural orientation, then we will move to the Farm Tomillo Tiétar and the last 4 days will be organized in Trujillo, a historical town in Extremadura, living with local families and discovering the area.

The Farm and Trujillo are 2 hours from Madrid, in the region of La Vera, an area rich in natural beauty with enormous environmental and social diversity. The project offers community service experience in the nature, as the same time as a space for young people to reflect on their life decisions outside of the speed of the city, whilst discovering new perspectives and experiencing of a deeper sense of self, other, the natural world.
