We have learned how nature provides so many benefits to us, particularly to soothe and calm our bodies and minds. We can also look around and see how nature is being sacrificed as humans take and build more and more. Without a healthy environment, we all suffer. This new project focuses on how parents can play a role to protect our natural environment and raise children who understand the link between their health and happiness and a happy earth.
What can you do? The Eco Happiness Project explores how you can make a difference in the following ways:
Protect: You will learn how to get involved in your local community and beyond as a family to speak up to decision makers affecting the future of our environment.
Live: Here we will address small changes that we can all make in our daily lives to reduce our footprint on the planet from buying green products to driving energy-efficient vehicles to reusing and recycling more.
Experience: A big part of instilling a passion to protect the environment is to go out and explore. We will present ideas about how you and your children can connect to nature.
Learn: Education is also a major component in building a generation that will care about protecting our precious planet. We will highlight children’s books, movies, and other resources that inspire children to go green.
I am excited to embark on this journey together, and welcome your questions and feedback.
