Frequently asked questions about nature

What do we mean by nature?

Nature is defined as all organic and inorganic phenomena that have arisen or developed by themselves and without the intervention of man. More narrowly defined, plants and animals are called animate nature and rocks are called inanimate nature.

What is one like when one is natural?

To be natural means to be genuine, open, undisguised and according to one's nature. A natural way of life, on the other hand, means living in harmony with nature - as far as this is still possible nowadays.

What does nature mean to man?

In nature, we humans promote our well-being. Exercise and fresh air supply our brains with oxygen and boost mental performance - at the same time, spending time in nature helps us recover mentally and physically. For child development in particular, time in the fresh air is especially important for the development of cognitive, motor and social skills.
