JOIN THE REVOLUTION – BE PART OF THE SOLUTION
Why I felt compelled to start up this organization: Like so many, I have been connecting children with nature for most of my adult life. My heart sank when I read that children spend 90% of their time INDOORS. As a mother and a naturalist this disturbed me deeply. I belief that we can change, the time is right, to reverse the time children spend indoors.

Dear Ms. Hughes:
“Congratulations. This is the kind of initiative that should be occurring across Canada. I support the Young Naturalists and Boy Scouts for the same reason. I tell the story that when I was growing up in the 1950’s, six of us lived in a house of less than 1000 sq. ft. and my parents were always telling me to go outside and play. Now we do the opposite”.
Go for it……David Suzuki

By making small changes-magical things happen!
The Let’s Go Outside Revolution is a non-profit organization run by a group of enthusiastic parents, teachers and individuals who believe that the time has come… for change.
To actively engage children with nature and reverse the time they spend indoors.
- Children spend 90% of their time INDOORS.
- Childhood OBESITY is an EPIDEMIC
- Children aged 8-18yrs spend more than 7 hours a day in front of a screen.
- 1 in 3 children in Canada are either obese or overweight. ADHD and other stress-related illnesses are at an all time high.
THIS IS PREVENTABLE!

We are currently building a network of educators, parents, politicians and organizations who have the same passion for getting kids outdoors. We believe if we inspire a love for nature in a child, it will lead to a desire to protect it.
I am a proud member of the children and nature network . This fabulous organization will be celebrating their “Let’s Go” campaign in April. Let’s G.O.! is a youth-inspired, youth-led Children & Nature Network initiative to rally people of all ages to Play, Serve and Celebrate. Our “Lets Go Outside” Revolution launch party is one of the events taking place for this wonderful campaign.
Thank you for your support. THIS IS YOUR REVOLUTION!!! Working Together for a better future!
Here’s a link to my “Let’s Go Outside” video series.
Together, we can connect our children to nature and ensure that the next generation has the opportunity, the space, and the encouragement to “Go Outside and Explore Nature”
Let’s give children back their childhood.
We ALL have a part to play in this revolution.
