Welcome to the Kids In Nature Network.

Being outdoors and in nature is good for us. It makes us happier, healthier, more resilient and more caring.

Over the past decades, childhood has changed. Kids have moved indoors as screens have replaced green places.

We act to empower, connect and grow a cross-sectoral movement that gets kids back outside. Join us.
