Our Vision

The National Wildlife Federation (2014) says “our kids are out of shape, tuned out and stressed out, because they’re missing something essential to their health and development: connection to the natural world.”

 

Earthside Explorers was created in 2020 to advocate for and facilitate children’s connection with the natural world in the hope that we, as a community, might change the trajectory for our children.

We advocate strongly for a world in which children are able to pursue their own interests and passions, develop their creativity and critical thinking, and do all of this through the context of what comes naturally to children - play.

Building relationships and community is at the core of what we do... particularly as we raise the future guardians and caretakers of our planet and support them to reach their full potential. In the current world climate, connection is something humans need more than ever... They say it takes a village to raise a child... we are creating that village.

 

Our vision extends beyond working with the children, however... For if we are to create lasting change for our world, we need to change ourselves. We need to BE the change! We need to be the connected and self-aware adults that we want our children to become. We need to do the work to be in right relationship with the world so we are able to role model this for our children.

 

Through the sharing of earth-based skills and experiences we hope to inspire you as you embark on your own journeys of discovery and connection - to self, others, and the natural world.
