4. Rural exodus and urbanisation – reconnecting children to the natural world

Moderator: Andreas Biesantz, EU Liaison Office, Demeter International

How do children benefit from experiencing biodiversity and the farm as a living organism? This workshop will discuss the effect of the rural exodus and the digitalisation of urban life on children and young people. It will explore educational programmes and methods for establishing connections between children and nature by enabling them to experience biodiversity and farms as living organisms.
