The Need for Nature: A Childhood Right
The eclipse of children’s access to the out of doors and its implications for their development are the subject of Robin Moore’s “Childhood Without Nature: The Right to Experience.” Moore enumerates factors restricting access to the outdoors as he discusses social and environmental aspects of the changing ecology of childhood. He calls for a new sense of child- biosphere relations and points to the international conventions and other venues where this theme is being taken up.
