No Child Left Inside Coalition

Most of us can recall fond memories of growing up in the great outdoors. The Land of Enchantment offers unique opportunities to experience the wonders of nature firsthand: in the forest, atop a mountain or along a river. Regrettably, though, children today are staying inside, watching more television, playing more video games and eating more junk food than ever before. This change in our relationship with nature has profound implications for the mental, physical and spiritual health of future generations. New Mexico can, and should, lead the way to a different future with programs and legislation that reconnect children with the outdoors.

"If you go with long-term significance, my pick for the top story of not only 2009 but also of the 21st Century is the pandemic of Nature Deficit Disorder, a term so aptly coined by Richard Louv in his best-selling outdoor book, Last Child in the Woods...."
— Bill Schneider, NewWest.Net
“Concerns about long-term consequences—affecting emotional well-being, physical health, learning abilities, environmental consciousness—have spawned a national movement to ‘leave no child inside.’ In recent months, it has been the focus of Capitol Hill hearings, state legislative action, grassroots projects, a U.S. Forest Service initiative to get more children into the woods and a national effort to promote a ‘green hour’ in each day.”
— Washington Post
“The movement to reconnect children to the natural world has arisen quickly, spontaneously, and across the usual social, political, and economic dividing lines.”
