Why We Need To Get Our Kids Outdoors (TEDx video by Ben Klasky)
Ben Klasky, a fellow classmate of mine, is the CEO of IslandWood, this wonderful organization that brings city kids into the outdoors to expand the way they see the world. He recently did a TEDx talk, and no surprise, it's amazing. He shares insights into why it is important to get kids in nature, his personal experiences with how kids transform, the concept of "nature deficit disorder", and their plan to co-opt technology to address the average 7 hours and 40 minutes of screen time our kids get daily (whoa). It's very inspiring - definitely worth a 12 minute break.

Parents, according to Ben Klasky, President and CEO of IslandWood, an innovative nonprofit organization that introduces thousands of low-income children to the outdoors each year, "You don't need to be in a national park like Yosemite or the Grand Canyon to enjoy the benefits of the Great Outdoors.

Ben Klasky
President and CEO Show bio Ben Klasky Ben grew up in Minnesota where he spent the majority of his time in the outdoors and, in the process, donated pints of blood to mosquitos in the Boundary Waters (and, admittedly, falling through the ice-twice!). Not only did he live to tell about it, it shaped his life-long dedication to helping get kids outdoors, learning and exploring. Ben is a serial entrepreneur. He is the co-founder of Camp Galileo, which has grown into the largest set of day camps in the Bay Area. He taught in a severely under-resourced Louisiana school and worked at Teach For America in its early days. He also co-founded Board Fellows while earning his MBA and Masters in Education from Stanford. (Board Fellows places business school students on nonprofit boards, and has served as a model that has been replicated at over 75 other business schools.) Ben teaches a graduate class on Social Entrepreneurship at the University of Washington's Evans School of Public Affairs. He has also taught a graduate class on Nonprofit Management, and produced a video called Know Your Sector that has been used by many professionals to better understand the power of the nonprofit sector. Ben frequently gives talks to groups of any size, and facilitates board retreats to help other nonprofit organizations be as effective as possible. Ben has been an active volunteer throughout his life. He has led outdoor trips for children from New York's Harlem and Chinatown neighborhoods, mentored a young man from New York's Washington Heights neighborhood, and has served on numerous boards. He spends much of his free time working with his wife, restoring a log cabin on Puget Sound, and chasing after his 8 and 11 year old boys. Ben Klasky President and Chief Executive Officer
