An interactive theatrical workshop whose participants will explore a variety of awe-inspiring phenomenon that occur right in our own backyard. From flower propagation to soil organisms, participants will embody nature’s processes, characterize the interactions between plants, animals and humans, explore the physical fundamentals of an ecosystem, and more. Through drama exercises and games, role-playing and physical improvisation, participants will examine and express our connection to the natural world around us, and how we can best preserve and celebrate it.
Green Kids Inc. was established in 1991 to address the need for entertaining, educational programming for school-aged children about the importance of environmental stewardship. Green Kids seeks to empower children by providing them with facts about environmental issues in a positive manner, and then equipping them with simple but effective tools to live “green”. We have been nominated three times for the Sustainable Development Award of Excellence.
