“Childhood is the ground we walk on all our lives” (Lya Luft)
How can we awaken our 10-14 year olds to permaculture? By creating collective vegetable gardens in our schools!
Encourage our young people to live outside in direct (re)connection with nature: to observe the life of the soil, to learn, to cultivate, to cook, to eat to the rhythm of the 4 seasons in an educational vegetable garden. Extend their discoveries during science, technology, engineering and mathematics classes, not forgetting language, history and geography classes. Integrate the outdoor school into the general education of our children.
We invite you to attend the #livingSTEM European conference on Tuesday 21 September 2021, from 9 am to 1 pm (CET)
The event will take place at the Ferme bio du Petit Sart in Grez-Doiceau (Belgium) and also be live streamed. Presentations will be made in French and English.

On the site of the Organic Farm (and at the headquarters of Générations.bio), the foundation will publicly promote to teachers, trainers, permaculturists, market gardeners, personalities, parents and the press, the educational tools that aim to encourage – in a school or association setting – the awakening of young people from 10 to 14 years to PermacultureIn the afternoon (from 2 to 4 p.m.), the pilot project for the creation of the future experimental educational vegetable garden in Grez-Doiceau will be revealed in the form of a participatory workshop, with the aim of training teachers, students and leaders of youth organisations in Wallonia and Brussels in permaculture. This project will start this autumn thanks to a grant from Qi Green.
This international conference and the LivingSTEM piloted resources are co-financed by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
