Nature is calling! Join the 30×30 Nature Challenge

Children today spend less time outdoors than any generation in human history. Canadian kids spend on average six hours each day in front of the TV or computer and less than an hour outdoors.

Time in nature can reduce stress and symptoms of attention-deficit disorders while boosting immunity, energy levels and creativity. Plus, children who spend time in nature are far more likely to protect it later in life.

The message is clear—kids need nature! And so do teachers.

If you’re a teacher or school administrator, register your school or classroom and get our 30×30 Challenge School Toolkit. It’s full of tips, resources and activity ideas to help you engage your students and colleagues. Last year over 600 schools across Canada took part!

Discover the secret life of trees! The David Suzuki Foundation invites you to connect with nature by adopting a class tree. Trees benefit humans and other animals in so many ways, providing shade, oxygen and homes for countless critters. Your classroom challenge is to imagine life from a favourite tree’s perspective, then tell its story.

For more details and to enter, register your school or classroom for the 30×30 Nature Challenge and download the School Toolkit.



 It’s time to get outside!

Watch this video and get inspired to go outside!

Dear Friends,

The 30×30 Nature Challenge is back! Once again, the David Suzuki Foundation is challenging Canadians to spend time in nature every day in May.

Watch the video, and you’ll see the more we connect to nature, the smarter, healthier and happier we are. Time outdoors also makes us more creative and generous in our relationships. And yet, most of us continue to spend nearly all our time inside, usually staring at screens.

That’s why we’re challenging you to answer the call of nature by getting outside for 30 minutes a day for 30 days in May. You could take a walk in a local park or spend time gardening. Or gather some co-workers and eat your lunch outdoors. Nature is probably closer than you think.

Last year over 15,000 Canadians took the 30×30 Nature Challenge. Last year’s participants reported feeling healthier and happier — they even enjoyed better sleep!

So what have you got to lose? Sign up for the David Suzuki Foundation’s 30×30 Nature Challenge today.
