PROGRAMS FOR SCHOOLS

Shinrin Yoku Portugal create unique experiences that, within the forest environment, create meaningful and valuable experiences and tools that can be applied in everyday school and family life.

 

We believe that connection to nature is necessary for the physical, emotional, and cognitive wellbeing of children.

 

Recent scientific studies demonstrate that spend time in nature:

 

• Stimulate children and young adults; 

 

• Allows the development of self-confidence, learning ability, and enthusiasm;

 

• Decrease conflicts;

 

• Makes easier to create a clear communication.

A Forest Therapy Session

We work with tools for the physical and cognitive development of children like:

 

• Slowing Down;

 

• Concentration Ability;

 

• Silence and Active Listening;

 

• Creativity and imagination;

 

• Clear and Effective communication;

 

• Sense of Belonging.
