Chaired by Zygon director Lea Schweitz the seminar offers an opportunity for students and others to explore the book of urban nature through an interdisciplinary, action/reflection pedagogy.

The aim is to reveal the realities of urban nature and to cultivate experiences through case studies, spiritual practices and nature writing.
