What Was Before Video Games?

It was not so long ago that the big wide outdoors was the mainstay of children looking for a little imagination and adventure outside the home and school.

Play by Nature

However, in recent years, there has been a departure from outdoors and nature and tendency towards television and video games. This trend has been linked to growing concern regarding children’s nutrition, health and well-being.

In an effort to raise attention to the need for outdoor play and physical activity, Brenda Simon founded PLAYbyNature, an organization focused on re-introducing autonomous outdoor play back into the lives of children in the Toronto area.

We are delighted to welcome Brenda from PLAYbyNature as our guest speaker this Tuesday April 21st, 6:30 pm at The Office Pub.

So come on down and learn about how one Torontonian is making a change and putting nature back into the lives of the next generation.
