Nature is a source of learning and creativity, personal development, and freedom. It is pacifying and restoring; a recipe for health and wellbeing…

A video by the Alana Institute, in São Paulo (Brazil), explains just how important it is to live your childhood in contact with the natural world to grow up healthily.

With the testimonial of several education professionals as well as parents, the video underscores how important this contact is to be happy and become conscious, responsible, and productive adults who are the custodians of our planet.

The video is part of the project Criança e Natureza with a series of videos called Inspiraçoes (Inspirations).
