NATURE IS GOOD FOR KIDS
An increasing number of studies shows evidence that Nature is a treasure of resources for today’s kids, with outstanding effects on children’s development. Nature helps:
by fighting anxiety and stress, boosting self-esteem.
by reducing ADHD*, fatigue, and myopia.
by enhancing school performance, motor skills, creativity, problem-solving skills.
by fostering inclusion into community, self-discipline, empathy, civility.
* ADHD = Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

NAYA NATURE WANTS TO GIVE CHILDREN NATURE BACK
Naya Nature’s pledge is to make children feel at home in nature, so they become well-adjusted and deeply happy in the world they live in. Making children feel at home in nature takes time. It takes time to be touched at heart. Regular exposure in nature will help.
KIDS CONNECTED TO NATURE. BRIGHT FUTURE FOR ALL
We know that our natural environment is deteriorating: natural resources such as water, air and soil are depleting, becoming scarcer, becoming polluted. As a consequence on the living world, we are nowadays witnessing the 6th mass extinction of species. We also feel the consequences of such damages on Humans’ health. We need a change. Naya Nature wants to empower children to change the world.
Do you also support Naya Nature‘s vision for a brighter future, that all children will have the essential connection to nature they need, to grow happier and well-adjusted to the world?
