Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature Deficit Disorder, coined this term which describes the growing social phenomenon of spending more time indoors with technology instead of outdoors in nature. Over the last couple of decades, it has become more challenging to stay connected to nature in Calgary. Many Calgarians now choose to live in high-density housing like a condo townhouse or apartment. This may be an economical or a personal lifestyle choice. Whatever the reason, it makes it more difficult to find safe, natural play spaces for children.
