Forest Kids

Director: Donna Leon

Forest Kids is a series that re-introduces children to the wonders of the woods. It helps to bring kids closer to nature at a time when the gap between children and our natural world has never been greater.

Getting outdoors is better for our mental health, better for our physical health, and better for the Earth. In the face of ‘indoor-i-cation’, Forest Kids offers a glimpse of what childhood used to be, and still can be. The unwritten rule of forest school is to embrace the unexpected, just like the weather. It’s always sunny on Forest School days.
