7th Annual NLI Design Institute

Thursday, 5 November 2009 - Saturday, 7 November 2009

This year the goal of the Design for Children IN Nature Institute was to raise awareness about the role of the outdoors for healthy development and to offer innovative ideas and concepts for participants to implement back home. The two day and a half event included presentations, discussions, and interactive hands-on outdoor activities.
