This is what happened in our 7th Community Gathering

Welcome to our 7th Grow Together Gathering!

We are a community of  educators, movers, passionate learners, coaches and mental health professionals and we would love to connect with you.

Our gatherings are once every three months. We  share, move, learn from each other,  soften. Each gathering is hosted by a different member of our community, so we can get to know new places, new ways of being, new people, new methods. 

In April, our gathering is dedicated to the topic of Mental Health. We are inspired by the work of Anatta Foundation on the topic and especially their projects of Nature Intelligence

We will share outcomes and project results by the inspiring project “Digital Youth Wellbeing App” that Anatta Foundation is developing in the last years. We will learn how to use tools for digital wellbeing in our work with children and young people. 

The Program

This time our program has three main elements:

16:00 – 17:00 Opening: we gather, connect, get to know the people in the room, make ourselves comfortable with the space. In that first part, we will explore the work of Anatta Foundation on the project Digital Youth Wellbeing App and explore tools for digital wellbeing.
