Nature Deficit Disorder

A report from National Trust presents us with compelling evidence that we as a nation, and especially our children, are exhibiting the symptoms of a modern phenomenon known as ‘Nature Deficit Disorder.’

"We look at what this disorder is costing us, why it’s proving so difficult to reverse, and gather current thinking on what we must do to eliminate it..." (Natural Childhood, by Stephen Moss)

"For a new generation, nature is more abstraction than reality. Increasingly, nature is something to watch, to consume, to wear – to ignore."  Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods pg.6
