20th Anniversary NLI Design Institute

Re-Naturing Urban Childhood: Towards a Healthy, Sustainable Culture

Re-Naturing increases biodiversity and supports positive human development: it broadens the diversity of children’s play and learning experiences, contributes to positive physical, social-emotional, and cognitive development, boosts human immune systems, calms and de-stresses, exposes children to living ecosystems and stimulates their curiosity to explore the wonders of nature early in life.


After much thought we have reluctantly concluded that given the high level of uncertainty related to COVID-19, we need to be proactive and postpone the 20th Anniversary Design Institute.

We are deeply disappointed; however, there is nothing more important than the health and well-being of our attendees and employees. A large gathering is an unnecessary risk given the current circumstances.

We do plan to reschedule the Institute and will post an update when we have more information.
