We’re so excited to have been included on the first episode of Channel 9’s Everything Outdoors – a new TV show showcasing all the amazing things to do outdoors in Western Australia. Check out our segment below, or the full episode on the 9Now website.
In just three minutes, Trudi, Kate and the kids sum up so much of what makes our programs special and important. They touch on Australia’s declining connection to nature, highlighting that getting kids outdoors supports their mental and physical wellbeing, as well as improving their educational outcomes. Trudi explains that “as people, we are meant to be in nature, connected to nature all the time and we are starting to lose that connection. We are becoming more indoors people in Australia. So we are trying to get people outside again, to reconnect, for really great health and to build community.” We hope that our programs are setting children up for resilient, connected, and nature-filled lives.
We’d like to send a big shoutout and thank you to the Everything Outdoors team as well as our friends over at Outdoors WA for making this happen.
