Take a walk on the wild side ...
We're working to reconnect kids with nature and supporting Project Wild Thing, a hilarious new documentary film that takes an off-beat look at children’s vanishing connection with nature.
Project Wild Thing is out on DVD now but you can also watch it online or at a special community screening. The film launches a major campaign to reconnect kids with nature. With the Wild Network, we’re encouraging families to swap at least 30 minutes of screen time for ‘wild time’.
We've collaborated with partners in the Wild Network to create the Wild Time app. Free to download on smartphones, it's bursting with ideas for new outdoor adventures. You can even add your own Wild Time activities on the Project Wild Thing website.
