In April we are kicking off a partnership with the Children & Nature Network with the Let's GO (Get Outside) campaign.
What is Let’s G.O.!?
Let’s G.O.! is a youth-inspired, youth-led C&NN month-long intergenerational campaign in April 2011 to rally people of all ages to Play, Serve and Celebrate outdoors in nature.
Who are the youth leading this campaign?
The C&NN Natural Leaders Network is a growing group of teens, college students and other young people whose personal connection to nature comes from their experiences in their own neighborhoods, woods, fields, arroyos, mountains and oceans. At the core of this network is the youth voice. The ideas and spirit of this network are being developed by youth in constant growth and they are moving fast! For more information about the Natural Leaders Network visit:
The Natural Leaders have created this opportunity for Family Nature Clubs, C&NN Grassroots initiatives, teachers, businesses, government agencies and others to work together to get people of all ages to take decisive action against nature-deficit disorder.
The goal of Let’s G.O.! is to bring together intergenerational groups of people to get outside together to be active, have fun and connect with nature. Families, teachers, students, mentors, grandparents and grand friends — and especially children and youth — are invited and encouraged to participate, to PLAY, SERVE and CELEBRATE.
April 2011 presents the first opportunity to pull together all of C&NN's partners and initiatives with a huge and inspiring push to get all people outside, and to encourage service projects to benefit the natural world. Some of these events will take place in conjunction with C&NN’s youth-inspired Natural Service Network, to cultivate and nourish a lifelong commitment to service projects that benefit the natural world.
In addition to being a call to action, Let’s G.O.! is a call for fun! C&NN envisions April 2011 as a tipping point in which people everywhere help build the movement to reconnect children and nature. Events will occur in a variety of locations and settings
Many organizations already have events planned in April. It’s easy to partner with Let’s G.O.! groups can register events here. It is a great opportunity to grow your groups and share Earth Scouts with like minded folks.
