NATURE AND RESOURCES
Nature and resources: presentation
“Nature and resources” is the container introducing into the relations between us and nature. It is easier to love who we know and, at the same time, we may more easily be willing to know what we love more. Here, we can therefore start from love, to cultivate knowledge, or the other way around.
Activities” and “Nature and resources” are sister sections. “Nature and resources” contains topics useful for a knowledge work of natural world, its internal relations and relations with us.
That does not mean an absence of activities in Nature and resources, but they can be a bit different. They are in any case experiential activities, requiring however a background to avoid fading into confusion.
Pages “Activities” and “Nature and resources” are sister sections. However, “Activities” mainly deals with the instruments that could better serve to approach nature by means of a re-appropriation of our body and senses. “Nature and resources” contains instead topics more addressed at knowledge approach of the natural world, its internal relations and its relations with us.
The two pages are organised in the same way. Infact, they contain specific topics and, within each of them, the sections: “Introduction”, “Programs”, “events”, “Articles”.
Introduction: gives an overview of the specific topic, at various detail level, always containing, however, a personal approach.
Programs: are the ideas for activities that already organised groups may be willing to require, or the base for completely tailor-made programs, for either singles or groups. “programs” represent the core of the offers of this site.
Events: are the pre-organised activities or other events, with open participation. At the moment you will not find a lot, but their number can raise.
Articles: are all the articles written about the topics of each section. If you have time, read them: after all, they are an excellent way to know the spirit of this site, and also to help making your choices.
Sympathy and involvement
to approach the beings of nature
Nature and resources: the sections
The main goal of più di 1000, and of the proposed topics, is the establishment of a solid relation between us and the world around us.
None of the activities is therefore disconnected to this goal, but each one can give a contribution, according to personal preferences. Here a synthesis.
Plants and vegetation. Plants are the building blocks of the living world; they also build the landscape and our food. They are always present during our walks. Courses and occasions for their knowledge.
Traditional foods. We have abandoned the knowledge of our food. Here a going back to a concept of traditional food, but not only. What are and from where our food comes. How to feel our food as a live thing, a part of our history.
Ecology and landscape. The relationships between all the part of what is around us, very often lost. The interpretation of the state and the evolution of the landscape we think to know.
Personal talks with nature. A completely personal dimension. nature, the being we encounter, can originate true conversations. That may require a bit of time, trust, and “mind of the beginner”, but we can get there.
Traditions and human places. Ways of acting have since ever been determined by the relations between humans and nature that inly since few decades have been a lot attenuated. Many of the places we see were created by this symbiosis, and nature is also where it does not seem to be.
Animals. I am not an animal specialist, from a scientific point of view. But they are the being doing things more similarly to the way we do, They can be sometimes unpredictable but, for sure, with a bit of knowledge, we can establish excellent relations.
A final note: this site is under constant evolution. It was put on line when still largely incomplete. What is not still here, could simply be waiting to be written, but it likely already exists. So, do not miss to contact me without any problems.
