The great outdoors – Project wild thing

Untitled-1Project wild thing, is the project of film maker David Bond, who has made it his mission to get the public (including his own family) to forget about modern technology and discover the benefits of nature. He has filmed a feature-length documentary about children and their lack of connection with nature which is set to be screened later this year.

There is also a website where you can sign up to take the pledge to spend as much time outside as you do looking at screens. You can also find inspiration for places to go and activities to do outdoors both recommended by the website team and by the general population (& of course you can share your own ideas).

Untitled-2Another great feature is the wild time app (available via the itunes store for free) where you choose the amount of time you have available (from 10 minutes to half a day) and it will suggest activities you can do in that time. Really useful if you are lacking inspiration and don’t want to waste time searching the local paper or internet for ideas.
