George Monbiot: With half of their time spent at screens, the next generation will be poorly equipped to defend the natural world from harm...

November 19, 2012 The Guardian

IF CHILDREN LOSE CONTACT WITH NATURE THEY WON'T FIGHT FOR IT

... While the surveys show that the great majority would like to see the living planet protected, few are prepared to take action. This, I think, reflects a second environmental crisis: the removal of children from the natural world. The young people we might have expected to lead the defence of nature have less and less to do with it...http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/nov/19/children-lose-contact-with-nature

Christian Allié's curator insight, February 14, 3:25 AM

.........""""""""""""""............

 

[  .......  ]

 

....... 

And here we meet the other great loss. Most of those I know who fight for nature are people who spent their childhoods immersed in it.

 

Without a feel for the texture and function of the natural world, without an intensity of engagement almost impossible in the absence of early experience, people will not devote their lives to its protection. The fact that at least half the published articles on ash dieback have been illustrated with photos of beeches, sycamores or oaks seems to me to be highly suggestive.

 

Forest Schools, Outward Bound, Woodcraft Folk, the John Muir Award, the Campaign for Adventure, Natural Connections, family nature clubs and many others are trying to bring children and the natural world back together. But all of them are fighting forces which, if they cannot be turned, will strip the living planet of the wonder and delight, of the ecstasy – in the true sense of that word – that for millennia have drawn children into the wilds.
