The first Animal and Nature Ambassadors World Congress

ANA congress – “Through the eyes of animals and nature

May 3rd to May 6th 2018

on Olympic sports center Rogla, Slovenia

More and more people are going back to nature. More and more people feel that this is the only right way. For that reason, the initiators of the congress from the Slovenian Ambassadors® center decided that it’s time to improve what we know about how and why nature has a beneficent, healing and therapeutic effect on people.

We will find answers with the help of 45 professionals from 21 countries, in 36 thematic lectures and 10 workshops, attended by about 400 participants from all over the world, from therapists, scientists, social, educational and health workers, psychologists, to the general public. Our honorary guests are world-renowned animal psychologist and founder of the Tellington TTouch® method, Ms. Linda Tellington-Jones, and Animal Ambassador® International secretary, Mr. Roland Kleger. The congress will happen under honorary patronage of the President of the Republic of Slovenia, Mr. Borut Pahor, and with the support of the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning.

The purpose of the congress is to bring together people who believe in harmony between a person and nature in a way that’s pleasant for both of them. That’s why our theme is “Through the eyes of animals and nature”. For four days, we will try to use our newfound knowledge and experience to understand nature as well as possible and put ourselves into the shoes of animals and plants.

Day one – Global meeting of Tellington practitioners

For anyone who’s interested in the Tellington TTouch® method and its effects on people and animals.

Day two - Through the Lens of Nature:  An Introduction of Green Care Education and Therapy Initiatives for Children of All Abilities World Conference

Days three and four – Global meeting of Animal and Nature Ambassadors

For all animal and nature lovers who want to get to know and understand them even better, as well as connect with like-minded people.
