(About) Treeathre workshop
Increasingly nature has become an exotic commodity to be seen on Discovery/Animal Planet channels or visited during those adventure holidays. The urban child is increasing deprived of the pleasure and challenges of experiencing nature, befriending it and learning from it the mysteries of life.
On the other hand, prolonged disassociation with nature and warped notions of development is increasingly eating into little pockets of nature that’s left in the cities. In Delhi the river, the ridge, roadside trees – everything is threatened.
Believing that best learning actually happens when diversities come together a deliberate effort was made to bring together children and young people of different ages-the youngest was 5 years and the eldest an under graduate student.
The workshop also had no fixed fees – parents, participants, friends all contributed what they could – from Rs.5 to 5000/.
