Oakland Declaration

Backstory. The Nature-Based Learning Network (NBLN) gathering at the Children & Nature Network International Leadership Summit, Oakland, California, May 2018, provided an opportunity to capture the advocacy power of this unique gathering of diverse disciplines and professions, to create an international declaration on nature-based learning. A draft was adopted by NBLN Summit participants. Many weeks of fine-tuning by the drafting team followed. The Natural Learning Initiative (NLI) produced the graphic rendition.
