A\J is running a nature photography contest in honour of Earth Day 2017
Remember how you played as a child?
Did you spend a lot of time outside, building forts, climbing trees, inventing new games and get your hands dirty, without any grownups interfering?
This type of play is rapidly disappearing from our world.
Why does Earth Day Canada care so much, and why should you?
Because kids who don’t get outside, who aren’t stimulated by their environment, won’t grow up with any motivation to protect our planet. And kids who don’t connect to their inner nature through creative play won’t be as resilient as generations before them.
To celebrate this year's Earth Day, team A\J is taking inspiration from Earth Day Canada's EARTHPLAY efforts to re-introduce children to nature. We're running a photo contest and encourage you to send in your submissions today!
