The Wild Network is on a mission to re-wild childhood. To help kids roam free, play wild and live nature-rich lives. We started with an amazing film called Project Wild Thing. Take a look around the site and you'll find the trailer, as well as information about how you can show it in your community. Get involved!

  • Traffic and road safety
  • Commercialisation of play
  • Consumerism and advertising to children
  • Risk averse culture
  • Perceptions towards stranger danger
