Canadians are spending most of their lives indoors – reports indicate as much as 90 per cent of our time is spent inside. Both doctors and scientists confirm that a lack of exposure to nature actually contributes to human illness. Our disconnection from nearby nature is a prime reason for the declining state of human health, both mental and physical. The challenge is trying to connect people to nature, to get them outside and discovering the benefits of immersing one’s self in nature. At CWF, we want an appreciation for nature to be an intrinsic value shared by all Canadians.
