Aug. 28, 2013, Outdoor Activities in Nature Can Make Kids Healthier and More Ready to Learn (NEEF)

Sedentary lifestyle and physical inactivity have contributed greatly to the numerous health problems plaguing today's children. Chronic conditions such as childhood obesity, asthma, attention-deficit disorder, and vitamin D deficiency have all increased over the past few decades. These conditions may lead to pulmonary, cardiovascular and mental health problems in adulthood. Outdoor activity in the natural environment has taken a back seat to television, video games, the computer, and a demanding schoolwork and extracurricular schedule. Many low-income and minority children are often more cut-off from nature due to the built environment around them: poor housing conditions, high-volume traffic, and a lack of parks and green space. While losing contact with the natural environment, today's youth are missing key opportunities for physical activity, stress reduction, attention restoration, and healthy development. National Environmental Education Foundation's (NEEF) "Children and Nature Initiative: Prescriptions for Outdoor Activity" to addresses this issue by training pediatric healthcare providers to write "Prescriptions for Outdoor Activity" so that they can refer families to a park or other green spaces in their communities.

Young children, those 6 years and younger, are at particular risk for lead exposure because they have frequent hand-to-mouth activity and absorb lead more easily than do adults. Children spend a significant portion of their day in schools and child care facilities and they are likely to consume water while they’re there. To assist schools and child care centers with implementation of programs and policies to reduce lead in drinking water, EPA uses the 3Ts concept: Training, Testing, Telling… We believe that each of the 3Ts is an important component of a successful lead reduction program. This webinar will cover how to implement a 3T program in your school or child care facility.
