Children’s Land (TiNi)

It is a methodology that connects children and youngsters with Mother Earth and empowers them as agents of change for sustainable development. It consists in granting them a space of land, which can be from three pots, where they nurture life and biodiversity with love generating well-being for themselves, others and nature.

A Children's Land can be implemented at home, school, in the neighborhood or community, in urban and rural areas, and in various ecosystems. Children's land helps develop active empathy for life and is an indicator of the children’s contribution to the sustainable development of their neighborhood.
