Event Description

The Lewis & Clark community is invited to attend the following screening and discussion:

What are the consequences of a childhood removed from nature?

Play Again follows six teenagers who, like “the average American child,” spend five to fifteen hours a day behind screens. Play Again unplugs the teens and brings them on their first wilderness adventure.

Through the voices of the children and leading thinkers including Richard Louv, Bill McKibben and David Suzuki, Play Again looks at how the imbalance between the virtual and natural worlds impacts our children’s well being, our society and the very future of our planet.

Play Again offers solutions and encourages action for a sustainable future.

A panel discussion and audience dialogue will follow the screening. Panelists will include:

  • Tony Deis, Director, Trackers NW, Portland, OR
  • Thomas Doherty, Psy.D., Coordinator of Ecopsychology Studies, Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling, Portland, OR
  • Susan Koger, Ph.D. Willamette University, Co-author of The Psychology of Environmental Problems, (3rd Ed.), Salem, OR
  • Greg Lemieux, Outreach Coordinator, Ground Productions, Portland, OR
