Nature Play

Webinar description

Nature Deficit Disorder is a term coined to describe the deprivation of nature exposure and experience. Research states that nature experiences are hugely beneficial for a child's health and well-being, but many children growing up in an urban environment are deprived of basic nature-related life skills.

Join this webinar to learn about the natural experiences children need to grow, the ways design can support this, and also when space is limited, and experience fascinating cases of natural play environments in cities and schools with play equipment that complements the surroundings.
