Why connect kids to nature?
We know that time spent in nature makes children healthier, happier and smarter. When cities reimagine themselves as places of nature connection, neighborhoods become more vibrant, natural places become community assets, and children and families thrive.
The Cities Connecting Children to Nature (CCCN) initiative creates more equitable and abundant access to nature in cities through a collaboration between the The National League of Cities Institute for Youth, Education, and Families and the Children & Nature Network. The CCCN initiative offers city government and community leaders support and guidance to enhance connections between children and nature. >More
