Biocitizen’s Our Place Summer School is for 6-12 year olds who like to walk & want to know how the(ir) world works. Our Place sessions consist of five day-long Field Environmental Philosophy walks that bring students into direct contact with essential aspects of NYC’s identity. At the beginning of the day, teachers raise a question to launch the quest, and then we’re off on our treasure hunt, hunting/gathering detectives looking for clues to solve the day’s mystery. Students exercise, perceive, share stories and background knowledge together, and have fun experimenting with a way of reading the world called eco-semiotics.
Each session we attempt to bring students to sites of first human inhabitation and then work forward to the present moment. This happens recursively and nonlinear-ily; we establish motivs and return and depart them as our environments and attention spans change. We also follow the weather instead of a rigid pre-planned schedule.
