A healthy environment is vital for human health and development. Evidence shows that being in touch with nature and physically active has a positive effect on children’s cognitive, behavioral, and mental health.

Especially nature contact in places where children live, play and learn, has a powerful environmental and social impact on their health with the potential to prevent disease and promote health equity.

As human beings, we are an integral part of nature, and we reap countless benefits from it. It's our responsibility to cherish and protect animals, plants, landscapes, and natural resources for future generations. Let's foster a love for nature in our children, providing them with opportunities to explore, protect and appreciate the world around them. Together, we can create a healthier, more sustainable future for all.
