Objective of the Project

The importance of outdoor time in nature for increased wellbeing of children and the development of their environmental responsibility have been proven by numerous research. But today, in many countries including ours we witness profound change of children‘s lifestyles: they spent many hours of screentime every day opposed to just few minutes outdoors. Our goal is to take action against this trend. We will provide parents, primary school teachers and other educators with information, skills, prepared educational activities to enable them to learn and play with children directly in nature.
