C&NN connects and
C&NN has identified over one hundred regions that have either launched or are assembling grassroots campaigns to connect children with nature. Grassroots coalitions work on the state, regional and local level to create shared strategic visions and plans and to map out a process for implementation. Regional strategies include: public awareness campaigns and community events; legislation and policy changes; public education and advocacy. Each effort increases the number of people and organizations participating in and taking action to reconnect children with nature.
NETWORK TOOLS & RESOURCES:
Over the past seven years, local grassroots efforts have helped C&NN turn a cause into a movement by building a powerful source of shared information and resources; engaging and empowering organizations and people across sectors; and bringing new, diverse and sometimes unlikely allies to the table.
