Side Quest – The Great Outdoors


Welcome to the sixth side quest. Here you will learn why you should go into nature, as well as how to connect with nature. In the final challenge, you will take an example from the natural world, and apply it to your own life.

You must prepare to go back down the mountain and back to your community, with something positive and meaningful to contribute. Change and growth are not easy, but like the eagle, you must be the leader of your own life – lead yourself!
