Educare (ne)gli spazi con le piante
A gentle revolution inside our schools: EDEN. Educare (ne)gli spazi con le piante is dedicated to the search for a closer relationship with plants to create a new Eden in educational spaces and make our school environments idyllic places.
Establishing a dialogue between pedagogy and architecture, teaching and design, Beate Weyland inspires readers to interact with spaces in a new way thanks to “domestic nature”, through reflections, activity ideas and playful suggestions involving indoor plants. Welcoming plants in schools, in the workplace and in our relationships benefits us not only from an aesthetic point of view but also from a social and educational perspective: by looking after plants, we learn to cultivate relationships with living beings and take action to sustain them and help them thrive.
In this book you will find tips on the choice and placement of plants, ideas and excuses to explore, play, create and… learn. Because there is no limit to what plants can teach us.
