Children, Nature, Cities, Schools

This is what success looks like! On the eve of the Children & Nature Network international conference, 30 people from around the world — across the US, Canada, Australia, Ecuador, Chile, and the UK — gathered in Oakland for MakeKnowledge’s dinner and brainstorming session.

We posed the question “What if, in mobilizing for climate action, we had big, ambitious opportunities to reconnect children and families with nature? How might we take advantage of innovative opportunities with our cities and schools?” and everyone went to work!

The only drawback? The night went quickly! We are looking forward to future collaborations!
