Nature for kids: building the connection with Jess Purcell - Ep. 005 Raising Eco Minimalists

    • Parenting

A common question is: "how can we get kids to care about nature/the earth?" 

It's a good questions, because after all, how can we, or how can we expect anyone to care about something they have no connection with?

In this episode I'm talking with Jess Purcell, of Thoughtfully Sustainable. Jess talks about how we can get our kids interested in the pressing issues that face us today. 

Jess introduces us to the term: sustainability science, and talks about what it means.

Additionally, we talk about the glaring fact that not everyone, or every kid, has the same access to nature and science teachings - and Jess shares some ways we can work to make these places and learnings more accessible for all.
