Children Who Play Outdoors Are More Likely To Protect Nature As Adults

Monday, August 21, 2017

A February 2017 University of British Columbia study demonstrates that children who play outside are more likely to cherish and protect nature when they become young adults. It found that 87 percent of those surveyed who played outside when they were young still held a love of nature into adulthood, and 84 percent of those young adults said taking care of the natural environment is a priority to them. The study found no significant differences in respondents coming from different social classes.
