What are the consequences of a childhood removed from nature? One generation from now most people in North America will have spent more time in the virtual world than in nature. New media technologies have improved our lives in countless ways; information now appears with a click, overseas friends are part of our daily lives, and even grandma loves Wii. But what are we missing when we are behind screens? And how will this impact our children, our society, and eventually, our planet?
The Newfoundland and Labrador Environment Network, in partnership with other groups have organised a series of free public screenings of Play Again in 2011. To date, screenings have been held in St. John’s, Corner Brook, Stephenville and Rocky Harbour.
If you would like to arrange a screening for your workplace, student group, or community, please contact the NLEN at 709-753-7898 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
