7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join the YNC and a coalition of groups in the HRM working towards getting more youth to spend time outdoors for their screening of the documentary Project Wild Thing. Screening is free but a donation would be greatly appreciated.
Filmmaker David Bond thinks Mother Nature needs a helping hand. His children are fascinated by screens but are strangers to the natural world. Childhood is different to when he grew up – so many distractions compete for children’s time and attention. David appoints himself the Marketing Director for Nature and, with the help of marketing experts, he sets out to convince apathetic consumers, and his family, of the benefits of this amazing, free, wonder product. His journey takes him across the world as he attempts to untangle the complex web of agendas, fears, policies and habits that disconnect him and his family from the natural environment. Project Wild Thing finds hilarity, joy and absurdity in the choices we face as 21st Century humans. What happens when we forget we are natural animals? View the trailer at: http://vimeo.com/68072823
After the movie browse the displays by various groups in the HRM that can help you get your Child Outside more!
