Event Description

Children and Nature: Rediscovering a sense of wonder


Teachers: Richard Louv, Kathy Louv, Jan van Boeckel


Course overview: The alienation that many young people feel from the natural world has become a major concern. It was beautifully articulated in Richard Louv’s book Last Child in the Woods, which has spawned an international children and nature movement. This course looks at why nature is important for children’s development and creativity, and how the “nature gap” can be bridged. It includes outdoor arts-based workshops and experiential exercises which can be used in many environmental education contexts.

The course is intended for: teachers at all levels, environmental educators, childcare and family services professionals, and parents.
