Thousands Sign Up to Commit 'Random Acts of Wildness' This June

By 11 months ago

"It's beautiful outside!" - said while sitting by an open window indoors, wearing a mask, refreshing the "News" section of Twitter's explore page in between squirts of hand sanitizer.

We are still stuck inside. Even though the weather is nice, the sun is out, and other people have been breaking highly suggested CDC guidelines just to get their skin a little tanned and drink a margarita outdoors. 

If you're on the good side of this fight (yes there is a good side), you should be staying safe and attempting to flatten the curve as best you can. 

That's why thousands of individuals are pledging to undertake daily "random acts of wildness" throughout the month of June as a part of a new UK based campaign to appreciate your local natural environment and benefit (safely) from spending time around the green stuff (trees). 

Our lives have likely been changed by coronavirus forever. Since society has slowed down, people have been able to take advantage of our sedentary time to consider their relationships with nature. 

Dom Higgins, the head of health and education at The Wildlife Trusts and founder of "Random Acts of Wildness," believes that now more than ever, people need to reconnect with their natural side. 

Since this campaign was launched five years ago, more than 1 million people have decided to participate in Random Acts of Wildness. The Wildlife Trust supplies participants with a free pdf full of ideas to spend your time, but they encourage that you come up with your own ideas on how to get reconnected with nature daily through June.
