Jojo, Miani and Zoe speak with Cecile van der Burgh about #NaturePlayWeek, which is held in April each year in Australia. So many children around the world are being disadvantaged by a lack of connection with nature in their lives, to the point where there is now a term for a new kind of condition called nature deficit disorder or NDD.
Cecile van der Burgh, founder of Kids in Nature and #Nature Play Week was born and raised in The Netherlands, where she spent a large part of her childhood
playing outside. She is passionate about giving everyone the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature, especially young people. Cecile is a fellow of the Centre for #Sustainability Leadership, a recipient of the Marie Byles Award and a Milo Dunphy Award Finalist and she is currently completing a PhD, researching collaborative connectivity conservation initiatives in Australia.
