Emma Lacey's curator insight, June 9, 2014 11:24 PM

This clip provides the reader with a different way of thinking about looking after your health. It is based on looking after and improving the environment we live in to in turn improve our personal health. This clip has great insight and while it may not be age appropriate for students, teachers will benefit from it. Through expanding one's knowledge on these issues, teacher will be better prepared to teach students. The key messages could be explained students also. 

I highly recommend taking the time to watch this clip and consider its messages.

Nature-Deficit Disorder

Nature-Deficit Disorder | Education for Sustainability-Education as Sustainability | Scoop.it

Something’s amiss. A third of all American adults — check, it just went up to 35.7 percent — are obese. The French don’t even have a word for fat, Paul Rudnick mused in a mock-Parisian tone in The New Yorker last week. “If a woman is obese,” he wrote, “we simply call her American.”...

 

But there is an obvious solution — just outside the window. For most of human history, people chased things or were chased themselves. They turned dirt over and planted seeds and saplings. They took in Vitamin D from the sun, and learned to tell a crow from a raven (ravens are larger; crows have a more nasal call; so say the birders). And then, in less than a generation’s time, millions of people completely decoupled themselves from nature.

 

There’s a term for the consequences of this divorce between human and habitat — nature deficit disorder, coined by the writer Richard Louv in a 2005 book, “Last Child in the Woods.” It sounds trendy, a bit of sociological shorthand, but...

If you’re a parent looking for ideas on how to get your children more involved in outdoor activities in Western Australia, then you’ve come to the right place.

There are lots of reasons why kids should make the move from the TV or computer room to the outdoors. Probably the best reason is that it’s fun, and you and your kids will be happier and healthier doing things together.

The Australian Curriculum v3.0 Sustainability

The Australian Curriculum v3.0 Sustainability | Education for Sustainability-Education as Sustainability | Scoop.it

Sustainability addresses the ongoing capacity of Earth to maintain all life.

Sustainable patterns of living meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Actions to improve sustainability are both individual and collective endeavours shared across local and global communities. They necessitate a renewed and balanced approach to the way humans interact with each other and the environment.

Education for sustainability develops the knowledge, skills, values and world views necessary for people to act in ways that contribute to more sustainable patterns of living. It enables individuals and communities to reflect on ways of interpreting and engaging with the world. Sustainability education is futures-oriented, focusing on protecting environments and creating a more ecologically and socially just world through informed action. Actions that support more sustainable patterns of living require consideration of environmental, social, cultural and economic systems and their interdependence.
