The ‘Earth Loving, Me Loving’ project reaches out to youths and seeks to impart the sensory experiences, develop the love for nature, and foster self-development and mastery in the process. Through guided nature and forest therapy walks, youths will explore nature in sensory and experiential ways. It is a gentle stepping stone, easing into building a connection with nature, practicing attentiveness and receptivity to nature. In the process of re-connecting to nature, youths can learn and develop self better - mentally, emotionally and physically.

Studies demonstrate that today’s city-living youths are ‘nature deficit’. The ‘nature deficit disorder’ while not a medical term, describes the human costs of ‘alienation’ from nature: diminished use of senses, attention difficulties, higher rates of physiological, emotional and cognitive illnesses, among other maladies. Beyond the impacts on our health, the lost of human-nature connections and the lack of personal relationships with nature will also impact environment and conservation efforts.
