Study: Kids Who Play Outside Grow Up To Protect Nature
It shouldn’t come as a huge shock to anyone, but a new study conducted by Catherine Broom from the Faculty of Education at UBC Okanagan found that 87% of respondents to the study who played outside as children continued to love nature as adults. 84% called it a priority.
But sadly, children are spending more and more time inside affixed to television and computer screens.
What’s clear is that early education in nature is critical to developing an ecological consciousness.
