Millennium Fellowship Project: Nature Informed Therapy Get Outdoors Campaign

Educate and encourage my peers on the benefits of getting outdoors and to look for ways to encourage the communities and individuals they are currently serving or eventually serving to get outside as well for immediate impact. The outdoors is an immediate way to introduce mindfulness principles as well as the obvious physical benefits. My project looks to target the UN Sustainability Goal 3 and UN Academic Impact Principle Number 9 The more people reconnect with the natural world outdoors the more they will want to protect our planet.

About the Millennium Fellow

Steven Grant is senior social work student at Salisbury University in Salisbury, Maryland, USA. Steven feels a small handful of individuals working collaboratively can have a major impact on local, national, and global issues. Raised on Georgia farmland, with time spent in Appalachia, as well as years living and working in the Washington DC/Baltimore region have given Steven insight on issues faced both in rural and urban settings. Analyzing the connection between rates of mental health struggles skyrocketing and a growing disconnect with the outdoor world, Steven’s project hopes to highlight the therapuetic qualities Mother Nature has to offer. Another goal of the project seeks to reconnect others to the outdoors as a way to strengthen a committment to environmental and sustainability issues our planet faces. After he graduates, Steven plans to earn his master’s degree next year in social work and continue working as a counselor.
