Common Ground: Nine in Ten Americans Agree We Should Speak to Our Children About a Future That Has Thriving, Healthy Nature

From children’s books to television shows, movies and news, American children often hear negative information or see dystopic images of the future of our natural world. Renowned children and nature author Richard Louv suggests a new direction, and the American people agree.
“We have a choice. If we see only an apocalyptic future, that’s what we’ll get, or close to it,” said Louv. Instead, he suggests we “imagine a society in which our lives become as immersed in nature as they are in technology, every day, where we live, work, learn and play, a future in which our intelligence and creativity, our ability to feel and be fully alive is enhanced by more frequent contact with the natural world.”
