Where does nature fit into the health equity discussion? And how can we help create equity in nature-challenged neighborhoods? In this piece, Richard Louv speaks with C&NN friend and champion of health equity, Dr. Gail Christopher, vice president for policy and senior advisor at the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. We’re delighted that Gail will deliver one of the keynote addresses at the Children & Nature Network 2016 International Conference and Cities & Nature Summit, exploring the role of nature in mitigating the effects of racial inequities.
Will the new nature movement follow the fate of another movement from our nation’s past, the nature study movement? A movement that generated a great deal of momentum but then faded into memory. Not if we take action to bring the new nature movement into our everyday lives. In this piece, Rich Louv shares ideas for how to grow the movement stronger.
