A documentary will be shown tonight (Thursday) hoping to inspire children – and parents - to reconnect with nature.

Project Wild Thing will be screened at Welwyn Civic Centre thanks to Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust (HMWT) and Hertfordshire Natural History Society.

The film has been created by David Bond and takes a funny and revealing look at a complex issue; the increasingly disparate connection between children and nature.

The film will be introduced by HMWT chief executive, Jane Durney and afterwards there will be the chance to discuss the issues the feature raises.

Sarah Buckingham, Communications Manager at the Trust said: “We’re delighted to be part of the growing movement to get children out and into nature. “This fantastic film highlights an important issue – that children everywhere are spending too much time indoors and missing out on so much.

“This film is a wake-up call; it’s time to reconnect with the great outdoors!”

Admission is free, but places are strictly limited.
