Why taking children outdoors during COVID-19 can make a difference

C.J Goulding

CJ Goulding is a facilitator, writer, photographer, and has a passion for sharing and amplifying stories. In his role with organizations Children in Nature Networks and Freshtracks he trains, mentors and supports a national network of over 330 leaders who are creating equitable access to nature in their communities. 

“Times like these highlight the importance and balance in representing urban farmers and people who are doing work with kids in cities about connecting with their local parks and balancing that representation of what it means to connect outdoors so its not just some random expedition but that its exploring and connecting to nature close to home has its own representation as well.”
