Solution

In our society the basic needs of our body to be active, to move, run, jump and balans is very much repressed. Children have to sit quiet in the schoolbanks and don’t get there information through bodyfeedback. The awareness pathway through nature is a process from about 3 till 5 Km. long with certain elements, who invite the participants to be totaly awake in their body. No daydreaming, no thinking acts, no discussions, no leftbrain activities, just beying totaly in the moment in full awareness and in full body-contact . I made desighs for about 40 different elements for this pathway and I feel that the moment is ripe to build and realise this project, so that thousands of people can experience this direct contact with nature within themself.
