Nature Kids - Movie Screening held at Surry Hills in Sydney.
Author: Planet Ark
Planet Ark’s "Everyday Nature" program invited Sydney residents to a free screening of the movie Nature Kids by Kenny Ballentine. Nature Kids is an enlightening documentary about the connection between kids and nature, and the positive effects of children playing in and learning about nature.
The film features many leading North American thinkers on the benefits of contact with nature, including Richard Louv. Planet Ark will give an Australian perspective on the issues.
At a time when the average Australian child spends seven hours in front of a screen for every hour spent outdoors - this documentary is essential viewing for parents, grandparents and educators alike.
Even though the movie screening is over, we hope you can join us in the lead up to National Tree Day to explore the importance of a dose of everyday nature for children's health and well-being.
