Meet the Dunes

It has always been something fascinating but at the same time extremely far away. Something to dream about. The dunes of the desert. To experience these majestic natural phenomena is a life changing experience.

We are all migrants

When we accidently crossed a national park in the southern Mauritania, I felt like a child. For the first time in my life I saw migrating birds in their winter habitat. It was deeply moving experience.

Zero dirham journey

On our way back to Europe after more than 3 months in Western Africa, Simona and I decided to hitch-hike from Agadir to Tangier. Just to squeeze the last bit of adventure of our precious time.

Am I a teacher?

If we want to change something, we need to take responsibility over the things around us. If we are to take responsibility over our society, we need to work together with the people around us.

Alejandro

Finally, I know I am ready to engage any adventure, and since I was little I loved to talk in public, share, learn and teach. So, then when I found out about DNS it was the light at the end of the tunnel.

Laura

I am from a small province called Catalonia, located to the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula, beautiful for its mountains called the Pyrenees and the beaches of the Mediterranean coast.

Tuuliki

Without warning, I broke the rules and chose to travel, and for the first time I felt that I was free to learn, free from any boundaries, able to check the perimeter and test my limits. Pulling me as far as I could reach.

Svetlana, teacher

Today, we need debates about feminism, peace, ecology, social movements, and much more. Creative alternative education offers each of us new perspectives and new ways of understanding.
