This event will be a shorter version of the Foresta Collective’s Woods in the City program, which explores subjects connecting with “Living in Diversity”. In the context of the World of Many Worlds, it will address the following topics: Reciprocity, Resonance, Borders, Anthropocene, "Alien" species... The participants will explore together how, by practicing a mindset of heightened attention, dignity and care, we can come to a qualitatively new relationship with nature - not submissive and dependent, nor dominant, violent and careless, but a relationship based on mature humility, listening and reciprocity. The session promises to be an immersive experience, a collective practice as a learning format.
The unfurling of Woods will include practices of: * embodied attention, * outdoor sensuous explorations, * getting to know local plants / foraging, * working with materials / thinking-through-making, * cooking and eating together, * converging the experiences gathered during the day, potentially making a collective artwork.

The Foresta Collective is a fluid gathering of humans, among others, that explores the potential for living together in more attentive, regenerative and poetic ways. It is an international learning community that co-creates experiences dedicated to ecosystems through learning towards a multi-layered sustainability mindset.
Core team members, Sabina Enéa Téari and Egor Sviridenko live and work in Berlin.
