We live in an amazing country right? We’re never more than 75 miles from the sea, and on average we get 132 ‘free days’* a year to explore our green and pleasant land.
But, it turns out that despite being surrounded by glorious views and fantastic countryside, here in the UK, the amount of time we spend in the outdoors is decreasing.
A recent report found that children spend 60% less time out and about than their parents did at the same age. Scary stuff, eh?
We thought so too. So we started to dig around a bit more. We found that apart from a relatively small part of the population, we appear to be losing touch with the outdoors.
Here at Outdoor Nation this worries us, and we’ve set ourself the mission of doing something about it.
