Project Wild Thing!
Project Wild Thing is a film led movement to get more kids (and their folks!) outside and reconnecting with nature. The film is an ambitious, feature-length documentary that takes a funny and revealing look at a complex issue, the increasingly disparate connection between children and nature.
I recently found out about this new and exciting project, which spoke to me on so many levels. The project started with a film, which tackles some of the really important issues facing our increasingly technological society. In essence, fewer people go outside, fewer children meet bugs and slugs every day, and as a result generations are becoming disconnected to the world we live in. The project aims to tackle this, help to bring children and their parents outside again, into the mud and the dirt, where it is safe to play and technology isn’t needed. I’m really excited about this, and I really hope that I can get involved and share our amazing nature with parents and their children!
