Attack of the sulky teen
Got this letter today about greening teens. Anyone have ideas?
What about teens? How do you foster a connection to nature when you’re working with teenagers? How do you inspire curiosity, respect and connection to the natural world when their hormones are raging and they just want to be alone?
Little kids may be harder to care for on a day by day basis, but head-strong teens need to be inspired and empowered. How do we guide our adults-in-training to love mama earth, spend time outdoors and make future-generation oriented choices without scaring them into submission?
