The living alternative to the University

If you would like to make a career in the system, go to a university. However, if you would like to develop and grow beyond the conventional and make a career in an alternative culture and lifestyle, join us!


Our Natural Campus is the alternative to the University. We are a School for sustainable and natural – organic way of life. Learning by doing, healing and new awareness for futuristic Mother Earth loving culture!



Today, universities offer courses in all topics you can think of, except an all inclusive, practical course to learn about holistic, natural culture and sustainable Mother-Earth loving lifestyle is not yet offered. That’s why our Bioversity Nature Campus, offering a place for learning and training all related topics. Because such a Mother-Earth Loving culture is urgently needed for mankind and her future!

We want to make the alternative knowledge and ideas for natural, organic and futuristic ways of living that have been made in the last 30 to 100 and more years accessible to everyone interested.


In 2016 we are starting courses about organic building, Bio-Dynamic, gardening, farming, and landscaping, the principles of permaculture, usage of renewable green energy, alternative technologies, naturopathy and complementary medicine and therapy, ecological and socially fair economical systems, social art, teamwork, communal living, self governance, development of consciousness, spirituality, survival strategies, eco tourism and many other things that support the development of a sustainable culture.

Students can study all the topics in 10 modules or choose an individual program. The Bioversity nature campus is a live school or school for living life for all ages.


The education and training model of the Bioversity Nature Campus is based on three main principles:



  1. Learning by Doing: We teach on site, immersed in nature, working with nature. This means the students live simple and naturally in the countryside. Here we practice and develop further what we learn in the courses.


  1. Learning in a Team: We share the work and support each other in everything we do. The basis is working towards goals as a team; not as an individual. At Global Native we focus on sharing, helping, and healing each other.


  1. Learning for Everyone: We try to make our course as accessible to everyone by offering it at an affordable cost for and accepting students without qualifications.


The training program is aiming to bring participants back to their true, natural potential and achieve sustainability in the student’s life and eventually in society. The basic introductory course can be the start to a new occupational chapter for seekers and people who would like a real chance in their lives towards an alternative future.


Before starting the 10 module course, we offer our students a 1, 3, or a 6 month basic introductory course where we look at all the topics to get a good overview. This gives the students the opportunity to individually choose courses according to personal preference and interest.


Participants require an adequate level of fitness and health because our courses have a strong focus on working within nature.
