Movement Ecology & Understanding (c)
Movement Ecology & Understanding (ME&U) is a platform for structured but explorative play of foundational natural movement outdoors that is suitable for all ages and abilities.
Getting kids back in nature and being outdoors more often
Maintaining the habits of an active life outdoors is especially important for our children. Our modern ways of life has meant indoorisation and digitisation have surpassed the need for long and extended time playing outside in nature.
As a father of two young and very happy ‘free range’ kids I feel that maintaining the foundations of natural outdoor based learning for our children has a huge and very positive impact on their mental and physical wellness in a world that is increasingly lived disconnected from nature and within closed indoor environments.
What does Ecology mean?
Ecology is defined as - “the branch of biology that deals with the relations of organisms to one another and to their physical surroundings.”
Life shouldn’t be about sitting all day and moving just a couple of hours a day - it’s about constantly exploring and integrating complex movement patterns throughout the entire day.
This programme looks at minimising the risk of these issues for our children through fun and simple application of being outdoors and moving freely.
It bring with it many benefits even beyond movement capability - physical activity and being in nature can improve focus, dexterity, sleep, behaviour, mindfulness, their general sense of wellbeing and even have a positive knock on effect on their sporting activities.
