Children need nature, but nature needs children more. Children who regularly play in nature grow up to be adults who care about green space and environmental issues. We’re going to face some really tough questions over the environment in the coming 20 years. It’s important that we care about it. If, as children we can walk with confidence in nature, as adults we will care for it. Reconnecting children with nature isn’t a luxury – it’s an insurance policy for the future.
