A Movement

There have been a string of op-eds and editorials about the Children and Nature issue for some time now. The Cincinnati Enquirer posted an op-ed by Cincinnati Nature Center director Bill Hopple.
With the book and speaking engagements all across the country, Louv has triggered a national movement to reconnect children and nature. Unlike the environmental movement of the 1960s, there has been no opposition to his efforts.

Some people engaged in this issue are talking about the need for more research, solid metrics to strive for, and advising caution as we move forward. Others are saying this is a movement and we need to "ready fire, aim."
