The film is a feature-length documentary that takes a funny and revealing look at a complex issue, the increasingly disparate connection between children and nature. The film is being shown at various locations around the country, including Worthing on 6th March 2014.
Project Wild Thing is more than a film, this is a growing movement of organisations and individuals who care deeply about the need for nature connected, free-range, roaming and outdoor playing kids in the 21st century. Hundreds of people have already committed huge amounts of time, energy, resources and money to help get the project where it is today. Which is really just the beginning.
They have also produced a fantastic ap which enables children to use the technology which they love but it provides exciting and stimulating ways for children and their families to connect in the great outdoors. Encouraging people to swap some screen time for some Wild Time! You can download the ap here.

“A gripping story of the desperate struggle to lead our computer-crazed children back to nature.” – Harry Mount, The Daily Telegraph
