Introduction

The children of today will become the adults of tomorrow. They will form the backbone of society and play a profound role in its progress, wellness and betterment. Their world view will significantly inform their outlook and perspective on life. Today we need to focus on nurturing our children in environments that will help them discover their personalities in a holistic and organic manner rather than being forced into a straight-jacketed, blinkered view which will ultimately lead to a narrow and tunnel view of life.

GoodEarth’s approach

At GoodEarth we incorporate planning for spaces that welcome children right at the design stage. We try to understand how these spaces will engage with them. It is not just about providing a child with a play area, it’s about understanding how the spaces will get the kids to appreciate and interact with nature and the environment. It’s sometimes the small things that make a difference.

For example, we place slippery slides at spots that are adjacent to landscaped pathways. Why? Because you don’t have to always relegate them to the designated kids playing area. Imagine the child who is prancing down a path and encounters the slide. Their exuberance is met, and they cascade down in joy and delight. It’s not about creating a tight form fit, but about a loose engagement that sparks the imagination.

Many children today lead programmatic lives that focus on a calendar of events in the day with the children following it by rote without a single minute left to spare. While one cannot criticize choices, it would be prudent to offer them some leeway in development – some way to get out of the hamster on a wheel syndrome.

Most real estate/living projects actually buy into this programmatic lifestyle by focussing on maximising the built area and square feet rather than on creating spaces that children can discover themselves. While many projects do boast of playing areas and the usual set of amenities, most of them are just a laundry list of a few sports and amenities areas – sometimes a large size does not equal engagement and development. What they lack is the connect with nature, spaces that don’t confine their imagination and spaces that allow them to grow – both internally and externally.

Nature, the Built Environment and Children

Nature and landscaping with mostly local species informs our planning and design. They bloom distinctively into spots that are lush and thriving with plants, shrubs and trees. These spaces then attract birds, insects and little animals too.

When a child lives in such built spaces, healthy living becomes a way of life. At GoodEarth our projects possess large open areas which are strategically designed to become one with the landscape. Children of different ages use them for various activities. By not setting any boundaries, the kids use these spaces as their imagination takes them – in any direction and in full flights of fancy. This not only helps their inner growth but makes for a well-rounded adult contributing towards building a healthy community.

Imagine the child that grows up in such an atmosphere. They learn to chase butterflies, make friends with insects and to love nature as a friend and guide.

They will take this learning with them throughout their lives which often informs their personalities and the choices that they make.

Delighting in community & friends

Srisha Sudhir who is just 13 years old, is delighted to live at GoodEarth Malhar. Shaking off her initial reluctance she discovered a world filled with nature, open spaces and a great community. Srisha states that there is no better place for a child to live within since there are plenty of schools close by, you have access to all aspects of the cosmopolitan life if you need, and best of all, you have wonderful neighbours that support you in times of necessity.

Upbringing children with nature

Ram and family shifted to GoodEarth Malhar from Bellandur side mainly for their kids to live in a wholesome environment. He feels that the environment resembles a typical pastoral lifestyle in terms of being surrounded by nature and green spaces. What delights him is that the kids have gained so richly by engaging with nature in a tactile manner. From vermicomposting to bee-keeping, planting to gardening they have been actively stimulated by the best the environment has to offer. The Anju Bobby George Sports Academy and sports activities at Confluence are also an added attraction for them.
