Thanks so much for coming to check out Episode 6 of The New Family Podcast!
In this episode I talk to Kari Svenneby, a mom born and raised in Norway, who’s passionate about encouraging families to spend time together outdoors.
But first I want to take a minute to make sure you know all the ways you can listen to our show:
Now back to what this interview is all about. Kari’s the founder and CEO of ActiveKidsClub.com, a grass roots community and website that helps connect children and adults to the outdoors. She’s also a classically-trained chef and library scientist! Kari brings a Nordic sensibility—and hardiness—to family life. On the weekends her family can be found hiking, biking or swimming in Lake Ontario. In the winter, they’re avid cross-country skiers. We talk about the different ways Scandinavian and North American cultures approach physical risk for children. And Kari shares her advice for keeping a family active all year round, even if you’re not a huge fan of winter.
Here are some great resources related to my discussion with Kari.
