Monday thought of the week: a better future

A thought:

We together can heal the separation between children and nature. We can reestablish a healthy, natural balance between technology and natural systems. We can build a movement that succeeds in reconnecting children and nature and in that process inspires a new generation to believe in a better future.

– Cheryl Charles, “The Ecology of Hope: Reconnecting Children and Nature,” Living Green Magazine (September 28, 2012)

    Hey! I thought of you this morning. NPR had a guy on talking about butterflies and when the interviewer asked if he thought it was okay for kids to catch butterflies, he had a great quote (sorry I don’t remember it) about how it’s absolutely okay and that we need kids to explore, touch, and examine nature so they can feel connected to it. Happy hiking!
