EcoMyths: Look, don’t touch: Do kids today have access to nature?

Children do have access to nature but there are all sorts of distractions. It's hard to find time for the great outdoors in between lessons and extracurricular activities or when the internet is calling. Worldview host Jerome McDonnell and Kate Sackman of Ecomyths Alliance find out what it takes to get kids unplugged and outside. Liz Soper, National Wildlife Federation’s Associate Director of Eco-Schools USA, and Emilian Gezci, Youth & Community Engagement Coordinator at Chicago Wilderness Office tell them how to do it.
