FOSTERING A LOVE OF NATURE IN YOUR KIDS

Cam Collyer, Executive Director of Programs, Evergreen Brick Works

Where do our kids play today? The same places as their parents did as children? Do they roam freely? Are you worried about the trends? Childhood is swiftly moving indoors, supervised, sedentary and with a strong dose of screen time – it's an international phenomena and a cause of great concern to the health, education and planning fields. Come and hear some inspired examples of what communities, schools and parents are doing in response, to create places and programs that are nurturing for children and good for their communities.

Cam Collyer is the Executive Director of Programs at Evergreen, developing Evergreen’s evolving national suite of programs that connect people, natural and the built world to make cities flourish. Since joining Evergreen in 1997, Cam developed Evergreen’s national award-winning school ground greening program into an international leader in the field and developed the award-winning suite of children’s programs at Evergreen Brick Works.
