Discover Mother Nature

Discover mother earth, nature, new life in your neighbourhood and further afield, together with fellow residents. What nature, greenery, life do you treasure? How and where do you see, hear, smell, feel, discover the earth, the flowers, the trees, the animals in your garden, street, neighborhood, park and district? Do others point this out to you, do you follow green news in newspapers, on social media? Do you go exploring with neighbours or friends? And what do you do when you find something, a bird’s nest, hedgehogs, kingfisher, an orchid… ..? Do you tell everyone who wants to hear it, do you make a video or post or do you prefer to keep it to yourself? Share your discoveries, photo or story and listen to the stories of others.

What is a dialogue?

Utrecht in Dialoog

A dialogue is an open conversation about experiences, dreams and possibilities. In a dialogue, you enter into a conversation with each other, and you meet people who you may not normally meet. Everyone is discussed and heard. Real listening is the basis of this. A dialogue contributes to mutual understanding, connection and insight.

Since the corona crisis, we have been going into dialogue online so that everyone can participate at a safe distance. We use Zoom for the online conversations. You can sign up for a dialogue via the red button on the top of the page. You will then receive an email with a login link and password that will give you access to the Zoom meeting room where the dialogue takes place.

Expedition New Green Life

In the first edition of this expedition Discover Mother Nature, we see nature in our neighborhood and new life with different eyes. Be surprised and inspired by the power of nature, by neighbours, people and animals and new life in your neighbourhood. In the second edition of New Green Life, we explore how the district, neighbourhood and street can become greener, what this brings and demands. Share your experiences and desires, listen to those of others and discover what you can do yourself and together to live close to nature, in / with nature, to breathe new life into nature ….. In the third edition When Working Together is Worthwhile, we reflect on the ideas and initiatives that are truly worthwhile for ourselves, others and future generations. Sign up for the series, spread the word, bring your neighbors and friends and put the dates in your calendar! If possible, we will meet in the open air at Griftsteede city farm.
