Natural Awakenings Milwaukee

Individuals and Groups Can Take Nature Challenge

Apr 01, 2015 04:26PM

During June, the Wisconsin Green Building Alliance (WGBA) is proposing that Wisconsinites spend 30 minutes in nature for 30 consecutive days as part of their second annual 30x30 Nature Challenge. People can join as individuals or in groups. The organization hopes that companies and organizations will also incorporate the Challenge into their wellness programs. Pledging requires no fees, and WGBA provides tools to help participants get the most from the experience.

“The average North American spends about 90 percent of their time indoors and more than six hours a day in front of screens,” says WGBA Executive Director Korinne Haeffel. “We’re also increasingly urban and more disconnected from the natural world. Symptoms of our nature deficit disorder are easy to spot: stress, obesity, heart disease, asthma and depression.”
