Do you remember climbing trees, kayaking down rivers, riding your bike all day? Ask anyone over 30 for their fondest childhood memories and most will talk about outdoor adventure.
But now most of us can’t find the time to fit adventure into our over-busy modern lives. And what will the kids of today have to remember, now that the proportion of children regularly playing in wild places has fallen from over half to under 1 in 10 since the 1980s?
On 16th July Britain will celebrate its first national day of adventure: ‘Wild Night Out’. And everyone’s invited.
