Natural Learning Initiative 20th Anniversary Event

Re-Naturing Urban Childhood: Towards a Healthy, Sustainable Culture

Re-Naturing increases biodiversity and supports positive human development: it broadens the diversity of children’s play and learning experiences, contributes to positive physical, social-emotional, and cognitive development, boosts human immune systems, calms and de-stresses, exposes children to living ecosystems and stimulates their curiosity to explore the wonders of nature early in life.
