Remember, as kids a few decades ago there were numerous things for us to do – splashing in mud on rainy days, catching tadpoles, and running around in open play grounds. Although technology has transformed our lives in various positive ways, it has also made us lead sedentary a lifestyle affecting the way children are shaping up these days, both physically as well as psychologically. To bring about a change in today’s gadget dependent, desk bound childhood, Action for Children’s Environment calls upon you to participate in the Outdoor Classroom Day. Childhood is all about playing. But in today’s fast paced life, children lack safe open places to play and parents lack time to take their children out to the parks regularly.
