We know now that more people live in cities than in rural areas. A lot of children don’t grow up with natural surroundings or at least within a green environment, they grow up among bricks. It’s up to us to do something about it. We have to educate people on a sublte way. So that a connection with nature will increase the population of happy and healthy children and therefor to have happy and healthy grown ups later on.
Biophilia = “Love For Life”
Everbody feels good in a natural setting, whether this be by the sea or in the woods. Nature soothes, calms and revitalizes. A Biophilic Design, inspired by nature, with enough natural light, dust free and fresh air climate control and soothing colour schemes can greatly increase a child ‘s sense of well being and their capacity to take in and learn from new experiences.
The Club will have a strong biophilic, natural design. All materials and colours used will be in line with this.
Ingredients for a thoughtful biophilic design for both indoors and outdoors:
- Toys and furniture made from sustainable eco & renewable materials (on the way to a circular economy)
- LED lighting
- Recycled/Upcycled carpeting
- Built forms that resemble the organic
- Create sensory environments that challenges the intellect
- Develop an exploratory and a discovery environment
- Make a connection indoors with outdoor – by activity/leisure development and total design of its interior and exterior
- Enough Day light & Fresh air
- Sustainably Managed forest wood (FSC)

Tree-athlon – Nature Leisure Activities
Tree-athlon – a fun and exciting outdoor game that connects children and parents directly to nature.
It’s a great way for the whole family to enjoy an activate and educational day outdoors. To experience nature, using all their senses. To see, smell, taste, hear and really feel the beauty of their environment. Tree-athlon is a fun tour of the environment, with a guide and a fun game element. Guests can learn about the Eco-Hotel’s environment and complete simple missions. Kids and parents follow a route in nature where they have to use all their senses to find out the right answers. Using all your senses really frees a lot of endorphins which create an intense feeling of happiness.
It also combines exercise, education and entertainment, which all parents will think is a perfect combination. The objectives are to entertain, enlighten and create amazing experiences and unforgettable holiday memories. Guests can choose from different routes – locations and also between walking, a guided Nature Parkour (with tree climbing – branch hanging), mountain bike riding and even horseback riding.
There can also be a version for the sea environment where local fisherman take out families on the water and guests can learn about the sea life. They can even catch their own dinner and learn to cook it local style back at the resort. Tree-athlon would also create work for people living in the region, who would act as tour guides.
