Abstract: 

The National Wildlife Federation released the comprehensive Children and the Outdoors State Policy Solutions Guide, written by Allen Cooper, Education Campaign Manager at NWF. This guide reviews leading state policy initiatives and provides policy makers and advocates with model solutions to the growing disconnect between children and the natural world.

The Children and the Outdoors State Policy Solutions Guide contains model resolutions, executive orders, and legislation that will aid efforts to reconnect children and families with nature. Solutions to the problems associated with an indoor generation must include providing youth with structured and unstructured opportunities for outdoor play, recreation, and learning. NWF's campaign to develop an effective response to this problem will mobilize policy across multiple fields, including the areas of public health, education, parks and recreation, and city planning.
