“There is one, and only one solution, and we have almost no time to try it.

We must turn all our resources to repairing the natural world, and train all our young people to help.

They want to; we need to give them this last chance to create forests, soils, clean waters, clean energies, secure communities, stable regions, and to know how to do it from hands-on experience”


Bill Mollison / The Godfather of Permaculture



POLEN is a collective that aims to bring together children of different socio-cultural backgrounds and educators with different art and permaculture experiences together, to “garden” and to create together.

Since the earthquake that hit Hatay on February 6th, 2023, POLEN has been focusing on the work for the children in the affected area. The restorative and healing power of art and ecology inspires and sustains us.

POLEN is helping to create a a space in which children can live in harmony with themselves, with each other and with nature by organizing holistic workshops helping to raise self-expressive, inquisitive and productive children who thrive in this spaceWhile encouraging children to connect with earth and their own creative self, it fosters a culture of pluralism and solidarity.


Each stage of our journey is a story of solidarity.


Why is POLEN valuable, what are its commitments, objectives and how does it reach children?

Who is POLEN targeting? Who is involved?

A story of solidarity in which dreams and realities, places and people found each other.
