Making the Case: Equitable Access to Nature’s Benefits

March 15, 2018 - 10:00am to 11:00am

Children from communities of color and low-income neighborhoods face physical as well as social and structural barriers to quality nature spaces and experiences. This inequity is reflected in disparate health, mental health and developmental outcomes. Conversely, nature access can create more racially, socially and economically equitable communities.

Join the Children & Nature Network for their first iteration of their “Making the Case” webinar series, joined by members of C&NN’s Research, Cities Connecting Children to Nature, Natural Leaders and Green Schoolyards initiatives. They will explore what the latest research and their work in communities can tell us about overcoming barriers and implementing promising strategies to increase equitable access to nature for children and families.

This webinar is intended for a broad audience including educational professionals, youth development professionals, health care professionals, municipal leaders, policymakers, city planners, and parks and recreation staff.
