Aurélia Chevreul-Gaud

Educational consultant, expert in social change, mainly on how to move from disconnection to connection with nature in the school curriculum.

Passionate about creating sustainable social changes and developing skills for it, I founded Naya Nature and different nature-based education programmes in schools.

My most recent project has been the most rewarding so far. It represents a culmination of everything I have been working towards: setting an innovative pedagogy (7 Connection Gateways ©), a skills development path and comprehensive guides for outdoor teachers.

Because we need the adults of the future to be capable of spontaneous creativity to solve environmental challenges. To lead us to solutions which are effective, efficient and holistic, avoid delusion and the false truths that are everywhere these days. We have the urgent need to repair altered connections between nature and children.

This is what I do. I bring knowledge and collective solutions to today’s challenges. I turn ideas into visions, missions and reality. I design tools, content, experiences and educational programmes to inspire educators and children.

And I am determined to make a greater impact in the world.

Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?

In the education field, as in other fields, innovation starts by being inspired by the others and by sharing. the HundrED Community displays worldwide inspiring innovations. I hope I can make a contribution to your mission.

How can education support students to flourish?

By bringing a balance between self-led learning and inspiring learning opportunities, freedom and curiosity, reflection (in every sense of the word) and open mind!

What role does innovation play in education change?

The world is quickly changing, presenting a lot of new opportunities... and challenges. Levers and obstacles to learning too. Innovation in education is key to just continue to fit with our mission with the new generation.

Three HundrED innovations you love. (and Why?)

Roots of empathy really fit my personal values in education. Wholistic Teacher Development starts from a really interesting statement. Aha! Well-being focusses on the body - that we too often forget in pedagogies.

Three innovations you would love for HundrED to know about. (and Why?)
