Community Benefit

The Let’s Go Outside” Revolution is about growing a generation of Happy Healthy Children by changing the way the children spend their time. Children, teachers and business's from the local community will be involved in creating the content for the "Let's Go Outside" Revolution DVD. The DVD will be filmed in the beautiful wilderness of British Columbia which is one of the most biologically diverse provinces in Canada. British Columbia is home to 143 mammal species, 454 birds, 20 amphibians, 19 reptiles and 450 species of fish. Some of these species are not found anywhere else in Canada. The FREE DVD and accompanying worksheets will be distributed to every school throughout BC. Local children will have the opportunity to benefit from hands on-community-based projects. Together we can reconnect our children to nature and ensure that the next generation has the opportunity, the time and the encouragement to “Go Outside” and discover the natural world.
