Local Roots, Global Impact:
2021 International Conference of Nature-Based High-Quality Early Years Education
We finally see understanding the natural world is included in the reform of EYFS statutory framework. Interacting with nature is not only beneficial to children's emotional wellbeing, physical development and cognitive learning but also an important factor in nurturing a sustainable society. Being immersed in nature is a gateway to children’s deep learning and full potential. Young children who have established an intimate relationship with nature are more likely to become responsible citizens of the earth in the future.
However, although kindergartens encourage children to learn about nature, currently it is mostly an ‘additional element’ in an already busy curriculum in many parts of the world.
We truly believe nature-based education requires the sector to be grateful to nature, to work and learn WITH nature. In order to encourage professionals to rethink the role nature plays within their daily practice, Early Years International Academy (UK, London) and Beijing Preschool Education Association (China, Beijing) jointly host "Local Roots, Global Impact: 2021 International Conference of Nature-Based High-Quality Early Years Education". By bringing together 11 speakers and 12 nurseries from 5 countries, we offer you a professional feast and global co-adventure beyond cultural barriers.
