"The teaching of Nicolas appeared to me very positive because it allows to radically transform our gaze on the formation of everything around us. Outdoor games, exercises and sensory experiences have helped to sharpen our senses and observation skills and to immerse ourselves in the world of the invisible. This experience is important because it will extend for all in a personal and infinite way. It also gives a fun methodology to better fit into a circular economy". (Florence Doléac, Designer)
