Having been desperate to watch the Project Wild Thing film since its launch earlier in the year, I finally got the chance to see it. It’s brilliant! The aim of the project- which is to get children (and their families) outside and into the natural world- is incredibly important, and it is something that I wholeheartedly agree with. The DVD has just been released, and you can buy a copy here.
Project Wild Thing is a film led movement to get more kids (and their folks!) outside and reconnecting with nature. The film is an ambitious, feature-length documentary that takes a funny and revealing look at a complex issue, the increasingly disparate connection between children and nature.
And Project Wild Thing is much more than a film, this is a growing movement of organisations and individuals who care deeply about the need for nature connected, free-range, roaming and outdoor playing kids in the 21st century. Hundreds of people have already committed huge amounts of time, energy, resources and money to help get the project where it is today. Which is really just the beginning.
