Back to School? Get back outside! | David Suzuki Foundation

“What we need to do is encourage them – and sometimes just get out of their way.

We need to make sure our neighbourhoods have green spaces where people can explore their connections with nature. We need to ask teachers and school board representatives to take students outside regularly to incorporate the natural world into everything they learn. And we need to stop making the outdoors scary for children.”

A great challenge and resource from David Suzuki Foundation: http://www.davidsuzuki.org/blogs/panther-lounge/2012/09/back-to-school-get-back-outside/?utm_source=AdaptiveMailer&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Science%20Matters&org=408&lvl=100&ite=1201&lea=137916&ctr=0&par=1
