Inside-Out International Conference
When children spend time outdoors, they are healthier, happier and more successful in school. But over the past few generations, childhood has moved indoors, disconnected from the natural world.
The Inside-Out International Conference and year-round Leadership Series events bring children and nature leaders together for networking, workshops, special events and a world-class conference hosted by the Children and Nature Network and local co-hosts, the West Atlanta Watershed Alliance and the Environmental Education Alliance.
