Recent studies in the US have shown that being outside offers a real life insurance for the environment. Children who play outdoors when they are young, grow up to be more conservation-minded. So, as adults, they care more about the wild things and places they’ve come to know and love as children, and will work to preserve them for future generations.
When our children are adults, they will have to find solutions for protecting wildlife, preserving green spaces, producing cleaner energy, cleansing the oceans and cleaning up the mess left behind by previous generations. By instilling a love for nature and the Green Outdoors in our children now, Planet Earth will have a fighting chance in years to come.
