Nurtured by Nature

Cultivating Children's Well-being Through Outdoor Connection

Nurtured by Nature

In the digital age, the allure of screens often overshadows the simple joys and profound benefits of time spent outdoors. A spring 2020 national survey of 3,300 school students revealed a concerning trend: a third of students reported feeling unhappy and depressed much more than usual. Amidst this growing mental health crisis, the therapeutic potential of nature for our children remains a largely untapped resource. "Nurtured by Nature" delves into the critical importance of fostering deep connections between children and the natural world, highlighting how such interactions can act as a cornerstone for emotional and psychological well-being.

Workshop Highlights:

  • The Crisis of Indoor Confinement: Examining the impact of diminished outdoor time on children's mental health in our risk-averse and comfort-seeking society.

  • Evidence-Based Benefits: Presenting compelling research that supports the myriad benefits of outdoor play, including enhanced happiness, improved attention, and reduced anxiety.

Participants Will Explore:

  • Strategies for Outdoor Engagement: Practical approaches to increase children's time spent in nature, from daily routines to adventurous explorations.

  • Building Love for the Earth: Innovative ideas to cultivate a lasting relationship between children and the natural world, fostering respect, awe, and stewardship.

  • Overcoming Barriers: Addressing common challenges and concerns that limit outdoor activities, such as safety fears and the allure of digital media.

This Workshop is Ideal For:

Parents, educators, childcare providers, and anyone interested in promoting the mental health and holistic development of children. It's also beneficial for mental health professionals looking for nature-based interventions in their practice.
