Nature Weekend with Lakeside Art Community

  • 22 March 2019
  • 18:30 - 12:00
  • Dianshan Lake, Shanghai

Join us for 2019’s second eco-adventure at the Lakeside Art Community! At the majestic Dianshan Lake, just 60 km from the West of Shanghai People’s Square. The Lakeside Art Community (LAC) workshop is an activity that aims to focus on a lifestyle inspired by natures’ wisdom.

There was a time when we lived a low-carbon lifestyle through traditional agriculture, transportation, and many other practices. These traditions are practiced within LAC in order to sustain a low carbon-use lifestyle. Which will allow us, humans, to learn how to coexist with nature. This workshop will strive to stimulate and enlighten the emotional connection we have with nature.

LAC aims to focus on the recycling and regenerating of local resources. By using local resources, we will strive to promote sustainable development within the local ecological economy.

Through this workshop, LAC hopes to educate people on how to co-exist with nature by experiencing the traditional low carbon-use lifestyle. Encourage and spread inheritance and innovation of these eco-friendly traditions.  Lastly, stimulate the relationship between humans and nature by understanding the idea of “Symbiosis with Nature.”
