Lukas Ritson, a sustainability educator, speaks around the globe at education conferences and childcare centres but in his spare time creates natural learning environments that connect children with nature and all types of play to meet their individual needs.
Both share a deep passion for childhood development incorporating risky play and embracing nature. They are both huge advocates of play and believe infinitely in every child’s rite to play.
