Education in the outdoors teaches today’s parents and kids how to have a healthy relationship with their body, their mind and the environment, and ensures that they will be able to do the same for their own children.
- Understanding and being in nature will teach us the skills to nurture and care for it in the future.
- Deep learning and emotional experiences in the outdoors create meaning and foster a love for the environment: they have been shown to be more important than formal education and training for promoting the value of conservation and sustainability.
- Spread the word: show how outdoor life has improved life for your family, and be part of a movement to change the way society sees childhood!
