A revolutionary, award-winning feature doc about the fragile connection between children and nature…

Join the Friends of Wellington Botanic Garden and international filmmaker David Bond for a screening of his film followed by a Q&A afterwards. All proceeds go towards the new Children's Garden at Wellington Botanic Garden.

David Bond is a father. Things have really changed since he was a kid. His children are hooked on screens and don't want to go outdoors. They want iPads, TV and plastic toys. The marketing
departments of Apple, Disney and Mattel control his children better than he can. Determined to get them up and out, David appoints himself as the Marketing Director for Nature. With the help of branding and outdoor experts, he develops and launches a nationwide marketing campaign to get
children outside. PROJECT WILD THING is the hilarious, real-life story of one man's determination to get children out and into the ultimate, free wonder-product: Nature.

Contributors include naturalist Chris Packham, writer and environmentalist George Monbiot, scientist Jaak Panskepp, writer Jay Griffiths, advertising guru Michael Wolff, and brain scientist Prof. Baroness Susan Greenfield.

We love our parks so much we’re dedicating a whole week to them. Events are happening around Wellington to celebrate the role parks play in keeping our communities and natural environment healthy. Parks Week is a highlight of Summer City.
