ACTFind Your Path
Connecting children to nature starts with you. In your neighborhood. In your community. In your region. Our network offers numerous pathways for any interested individual, family or community to ACT. There’s no stronger course to building momentum for the children and nature movement than through your involvement. Find your path. Act today.
By making a commitment to getting your kids unplugged and out in nature, you are taking action to improve their health and wellness. Similarly, by supporting your community in advancing programs to increase children’s and families’ access to the natural world, you are adding your voice to the children and nature movement.
Community programs that help connect residents to the natural world only work when they are strongly supported by local constituents. Your involvement in community programs supporting immersion in the outdoors can make a difference in people’s lives and the improvement of your overall community.
Transforming how key institutions are structured and governed is critical to making lasting social change. Just think if businesses, government agencies, and educational institutions made it a priority to connect children to nature. That future is within our grasp, if we take action to change these systems. With your participation, the collective movement will institute change in key institutions toward a society connected to the natural world.
Policy & Education
We are actively engaging in education and policy discussion to address public health issues and affect social change based on the substantial aggregate research on the benefits of connecting children and families to nature. By helping to build strategic relationships with government representatives, public policy experts and others at the city, county, state and national levels, you are building a knowledge base around nature’s substantial benefits to children and adults.
