Imagine a world where children know their own backyards ~ where they can name the flora and fauna they observe and actively seek to create a children-led new order on how to create and conserve nature spaces.
Imagine a world where educators use the natural world as an integral part of formal learning. A world where every school has a natural space and lessons are regularly held outdoors. Imagine a world where connecting people to nature becomes a growth industry.
