Nature and Ideology

  • About the Project

Allotment gardens as places of refuge from the Nazi regime, the garden city of Auschwitz as a National Socialist model city, the kibbutz as a sign of the dawn of a new society; „places close to nature“ could hardly be more different. Where is the link between these places, what separates them and what does the appropriation of such places mean for nature conservation and environmental protection and thus also for the future of young people on our planet? Together with young people from Greece and Germany, we want to explore the diverse framing of gardens regarding social change. Thereby we want to show how inhuman ideologies gain a foothold in nature conservation and environmental protection, but also how they can be uncovered as such and how positive humanistic alternatives can be offered instead.

The project started with a meeting of experts taking place in Germany. In 2022 two youth exchanges in Corfu and Germany will follow. The second part of the project will take place in Israel and will show how nature and gardens can be thought of in a humanistic and inclusive way. The professionals from Greece and Germany will travel to Israel in the first quarter of 2023 followed by the group of young people from both countries in the second quarter of 2023.
