Nature deficit: Embracing the benefits of nature play in urban spaces

How to view and include urban landscapes as rich environments to engage with nature Presented by Susan Franco


Children are spending less time outdoors, which can impact their well-being. How can we encourage a nature play approach when space and opportunities are limited? This webinar will discuss ways to help children develop a deep appreciation and respect for the land they walk on. Urban spaces offer rich landscapes for children to engage with nature and develop a pedagogical companionship that values sustainability, diversity, and complexity.
