Get Outside: Connecting with nature is good for you

At TEDxAlgonquinPark, it's no secret that we love the outdoors. We spend so much time outside that sometimes it can be hard to remember that some people never have the opportunity (or the desire) to be out in the woods, at a lake, or hiking up hills and mountains. That's a tragedy, but particularly so when it comes to children. In this TEDxRedDeer talk, Jim Robertson talks about the importance of Connecting Young Children to Nature.

If you want to learn more, be sure to check out the book that Jim recommends in his talk - Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder by Richard Louv.

Do you have an inspiring idea to share that relates to our theme Think Outside? Speaker nominations for TEDxAlgonquinPark are now open. Apply here!
