Children & Nature Network

Based in Minneapolis, the Children & Nature Network (C&NN) is a nonprofit organization co-founded by Richard Louv, who coined the term "nature-deficit disorder" in his 2005 book Last Child in the Woods. As the organization points out, "Nature has the power to make children healthier, happier and smarter. But over the last few generations, childhood has moved indoors, leaving kids disconnected from the natural world." Readers interested in information to help remedy this can check out C&NN's Learn section, where they will find a free, searchable Research Library containing detailed summaries and citations of peer-reviewed articles and a collection of free Tools & Resources grouped into categories (for example, Infographics, Families, and more). The Learn section also offers numerous recorded Training webinars as well as a News Center, where readers will find C&NN's two blogs and links to relevant news articles from around the world. Those interested in going further will find a global Movement Directory of local organizations under Connect, while the Act section offers examples of paths at multiple levels for individuals and communities to help foster and support connections with the outdoors.
