RECONNECTING PEOPLE WITH NATURE
FORMS OF COLLABORATION
CASE: PAAVOLA’S OAK TREE
Nature is the source of life and wellbeing. Nowadays we are guests in nature and should behave in the appropriate way.
We want people to have a meaningful experience in nature, develop their relationship with nature and consequently be motivated to protect something that has become of immense value to them.
We respect nature by leaving no trace when visiting, as well as by honouring rules and codes of behaviour. We want to show a good example to all those heading out into nature.
The wellbeing of people is important to us. People are not contrary to nature, but part of it.
We want to lower the threshold for every person to head out into nature. By facilitating people’s relationship with nature and by strengthening it, we believe that nature will become a significant part of more people’s wellbeing.
We feel that we need new ways to find economical value from nature other than as a source of raw materials. We want to promote and help develop sustainable domestic travel.
From nature we enjoy all that is granted by Everyman’s Rights, yet also respect our obligations under Everyman’s Rights. This way we ensure the wellbeing of nature through our own sustainable behaviour and at the same time support Finland’s Everyman’s Rights arrangement.
Retkipaikka’s contributors do what they love. They write about places that they themselves have fallen for. And the Retkipaikka team loves nature.
