Vi har underskud på “natur-balancen” … og det går ud over vores sundhed

februar 7, 2008

“Nature-deficit disorder is not an official diagnosis
but a way of viewing the problem, and describes
the human costs of alienation from nature, among them:
diminished use of the senses, attention difficulties, and
higher rates of physical and emotional illnesses.
The disorder can be detected in individuals,
families, and communities.”

– Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods

“Concerns about long-term consequences—affecting
emotional well-being, physical health, learning abilities,
environmental consciousness—have spawned a national
movement to ‘leave no child inside.’ In recent months, it
has been the focus of Capitol Hill hearings, state
legislative action, grassroots projects, a U.S. Forest
Service initiative to get more children into the woods and
a national effort to promote a ‘green hour’ in each day.”

– Washington Post, June, 2007
