There are many green projects, but Kids of Nature believes that not enough is being done to enable children to feel connected with their natural environment. Kids of Nature addresses a key issue of today's society: Nature Defecit Disorder * (NDD) - the alienation of children from their natural environment resulting in emotional imbalance, violence, mismanagement of natural resources and climate change.
In many parts of the world, urban children are developing disturbing ideas of what nature is. In dealing with NDD, parents increase true happiness in their children's lives and help restore values such as respect and care. In so doing, we create a solution against climate change by building a new generation of globally responsible decision makers, whose love for nature will enable them to combine technology and pro?t in a context of global environmental sustainability. "Parents, grandparents, and other relatives are the first responders, but they cannot resolve society's nature deficit disorder by themselves. Educators, health care professionals, policy-makers, business people, urban designers - all must lend a hand." Richard Louv, author of the bestselling book Last Child in the Woods. Kids of Nature aims to be a one-stop-site for anything related to living in harmony with nature, with a focus on families and specifically, children.
