Is your teenager always hooked to online games and play stations? Are you concerned that they are spending too much time indoors and wish they would spend more time outdoors? Here is a great solution to your problems. Conservationists say that the answer is to target them with a smartphone app that diverts their attention.
The new approach by scientists is part of a new drive that is designed to encourage teenagers across the UAE to be proactive in enjoying and participating in environmental activities. The app is especially targeted at youngsters who are in the 16-24 age group and will also enable the users of the app to work on their own profiles, chat with friends, play games and also indulge in some challenges.
The creators of the app that is called Connect with Nature, are optimistic that with the help of the app, teenagers will switch to healthy activities like hiking, camping and kayaking. Thus, technology is utilised to get them to explore the natural heritage.
