This documentary style movie explores the powerful role of nature experiences in the health and development of children of all ages. The effects of “nature deficit disorder” are now being noted across the country in epidemics of child obesity, attention disorders and depression. Discussions will focus on ways to get children outside, enjoying nature.
Filmed from the wilds of Vermont to Washington, D.C., filmmakers sought the voices of many adult experts. Interviews include: Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods and leader in the field of place-based education, Yale Professor, Stephen Kellert, PhD.
A panel discussion will follow with Dr. Elizabeth Rose, Pediatrician; Tina Miller, Schiff Nature Preserve Environmental Educator; Paul Parker, Willow School Science Teacher; and John Brandi, Willow School Psychologist.
