Access Nature

I was selected as a 2019 Storyteller with Rooted in Rights. I scripted and directed this four minute video about the importance of access to nature, making the outdoors more accessible, and how disabled and chronically ill people can connect with nature wherever they are.

The physical, mental, and emotional benefits of access to nature are widely known, yet communities that need these benefits the most are often excluded from outdoor spaces. What does accessibility in the outdoors actually mean, and how can it be improved for all people with disabilities? Syren Nagakyrie shares their experiences as a disabled hiker and offers some suggestions.

The video, transcript, and additional resources are available at https://rootedinrights.org/accessnature/
