birthright of every person

I think a robust relationship with wild nature is the birthright of every person. And a lot of people today are getting short changed on their birthright through some variety or combination of: injustice, intimidation, or complacency.

Whether personally culpable or systemically obstructed, some of what needs to happen to help everyone claim their birthright:

  • need to demythologize wildness (to cut through the intimidation factor)

  • need to encourage imagination and play (to cut through the complacency factor)

  • need to proliferate simple opportunities for regular connection (to cut through injustice and lack of access)

What else? What else?
