A fundamental guiding principle of the Earthvalues Institute (EVI) is the premise of Nature as our teacher and guide. EVI staff creatively weave Nature themes into school curricula, leadership trainings, and all other programs. We see Nature as a vehicle for teaching and learning across curricula and learning modalities, allowing for access to the artist, musician, scientist, and writer in each program participant. Nature is portrayed as the timeless and limitless source of inspiration for all kinds human endeavours. The relevancy of today's environmental issues and the role Nature can play in individual and group leadership is highlighted in all EVI educational programs.
