Kids who spend time in nature are happier, healthier and smarter

It’s back-to-school time — time to get back outside!

Help kids explore the outdoors while teaching them about environmental responsibility. Join the David Suzuki Foundation’s Back to School Superhero Challenge.

  • You and your family and/or classroom will receive a superhero-themed activity each week for four weeks (starting September 21).
  • Each activity teaches kids about pressing environmental issues and connects them to the great outdoors.
  • Activities are adapted from the David Suzuki Foundation’s Connecting With Nature educational guides.
  • You’ll be entered to win an autographed children’s book by David Suzuki and a beautiful Herschel hemp backpack. Classrooms can win a collection of autographed David Suzuki children’s books.

Research shows that children who spend time outside are healthier, happier and smarter. We also know that people who feel connected to nature are more likely to care about protecting it.

So let’s get kids outside and save the world!
