The Children & Nature network [C&Nn] reports that policymakers,
environmental scientists, health care professionals and parks directors from 18 countries gathered in the USA a couple of weeks ago to ask: Why don’t kids play outside? Speakers included Richard Louv, a 14-year-old Native American activist, and a health policy expert from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The conference drew 600 participants, including 100 from 19 countries.
You can now view the videos of all of the conference keynote presentations on C&NN’s Youtube playlist. It’s not yet clear whether this was worthwhile in the sense of anything worthwhile emerging. We’ll keep an eye on it to see what transpires.
