About the Children & Nature Network

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. This worldwide trend has profound implications for children’s healthy development—and the future of our planet.

Our Vision:
A world in which all children play, learn and grow with nature in their everyday lives.

Our Mission:
We are leading a global movement to increase equitable access to nature so that children– and natural places–can thrive.​ ​We ​do this ​by investing in leadership and communities through sharing evidence-based resources, scaling innovative solutions and driving policy change.
