‘Seashells’, Volume 1 – is a small effort in our ongoing work, to make nature-based learning and a deep relationship to the living world, a cultural practice in our education. It adds to the current of reimagination gathering momentum in this direction across the world.

This little book invites you – the educator, parent, and learner – to experience beaches and oceans (just as marshlands, grasslands, forests, hills and any other wilderness habitat) as extraordinary learning spaces beyond any school or confined classroom can be. And it invites you to find this to be true across ages, and across learners and discover that the most meaningful learnings come from understanding the real world, the living world and one’s relationships within it.
