If you were asked to remember your special outdoor place as a child, where would your mind go?
The chances are, that you just thought of a significant stream, back-alley or playground that was introduced to you through family or friends. Everyone has a childhood memory of the outdoors that remains significant to them through their lives. This significance is what lies at the heart of my proposal: that nature-connection is an emotionally engaging experience when portrayed through a very personal lens. The concept is to take a small group of well-known North Americans on a journey back to their childhood haunts – their transformative place in the outdoors. Then ask the North American public to respond through online creative means by returning to their places.
