About the Documentary:

Genuine connections between children and nature can revolutionize our future. But is this discovery still possible in the world’s major urban centers?

Scientific evidence indicates that a lack of contact with nature can contribute to physical and mental problems. In the new chapter of “The Beginning of Life,” leading experts on the subject show how this connection can be part of the cure for the biggest challenges facing humanity today and the construction of a happier life with a greater level of well-being.

The film reveals that this concept has been transformative in several cities around the world that value and promote a greater connection with the natural world. The combination of science and action means a unique opportunity for a healthier future for humans and the planet.
