Project Wild Thing is a feature-length documentary film. It has also kickstarted The Wild Network - a network of people and organisations who are on a mission to rewild childhood. Only 1 in 10 children regularly play in wild places. Children’s roaming area has shrunk by 90% in a generation. Today, more children can identify a Dalek than a magpie.


The movement aims to find and share inspiration and ideas so that people can rewild their family, community or school. If we find ways to do that we can really change things in three big ways: 


Health

Children’s mental and physical health are improved in the outdoors, if they are indoors they are simply less active and less exposed to nature.


Happiness

Playing outdoors and exploring nature is an essential part of a happy childhood, helping children to build friendships, get to know their community and grow confidence.


Environment

If children do not connect with the natural world, they’re unlikely to care enough about the environment to fight to look after it.The Wild Network is now a collaborative network of organisations and thousands of individuals. Our membership is diverse: From conservation charities and schools, to healthcare providers, local government, children’s charities and individuals.
