Un-Plug, Re-Connect: An Evening With Jon Young
October 2, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Jon Young, author of Coyote’s Guide To Connecting with Nature, will spend the evening laying out a hopeful vision for getting people reconnected with themselves, others, and the natural world. He is the co-founder of the 8 Shields Institute, which works to create nature connection in communities around the world. This talk will provide a comprehensive and inspiring set of tools to help young and old answer the warning of Richard Louv’s widespread diagnosis of nature deficit disorder. A must-go event for educators and community leaders, parents, neighbours, aunties and uncles – anyone who wants time-tested and effective approaches to get the people in your community out of doors, having fun, and reconnected with the natural world.
