Want to get healthier, happier and smarter, just by spending time in the places you love most? This May, join our 30 × 30 Nature Challenge! For the second year, we'll be helping Canadians get outside in nature for 30 minutes a day for 30 days.

Countless studies show that being regularly immersed in a natural setting, like a park, ravine or forest, can lower blood pressure, anxiety and stress levels and boost immunity. "Green time" also reduces feelings of anger and depression, while increasing energy, creativity and even generosity.

Sign up for the challenge at 30×30.davidsuzuki.org/join. Throughout May, you'll receive helpful tips and inspiring stories, as well as opportunities to win great prizes.

How can you add a daily dose of nature? Eat lunch in a nearby park, take your meetings outside or skip the gym and take a jog or walk outside. We at the Foundation will embrace the challenge alongside you.
