Take Me Outside Day in
Days to go:
Take Me Outside Day encourages people to appreciate the beauty and benefits of open-air spaces and the natural environment. The event emphasizes the importance of reconnecting with nature and promoting physical activity, as well as cultivating a sense of environmental responsibility. It invites schools, businesses, community organizations, and individuals all across the country to step out of their indoor spaces and engage with the surrounding natural world.
The idea for Take Me Outside Day originated from the work of Colin Harris, who ran across Canada in 2011, logging over 7,600 kilometres to encourage more outdoor time for students. Recognizing the increasing disconnect between today's children and nature, Harris created the Take Me Outside organization, which has since expanded its reach to include people of all ages. The observance has grown in importance in Canada due to heightened concerns over climate change, sedentary lifestyles, and mental health issues, as they are all interrelated with our relationship to nature.
Typical customs and activities for Take Me Outside Day in Canada include organizing outdoor lessons at schools, family hikes or biking trips, park clean-ups, and community gardening projects, among other creative outdoor endeavors. These activities not only provide opportunities to engage with nature but also foster awareness and appreciation for the natural world, as well as provide health benefits that come with physical activity. Take Me Outside Day is typically observed in late October, offering Canadians a chance to immerse themselves in the beautiful fall landscapes and enjoy cool, crisp air before winter sets in.
