Abstract
This report contains your ideas of why young people today do and should care about our natural and cultural heritage, the key obstacles that keep you from connecting to the outdoors, as well as your best ideas for how to move forward. Thanks to your energy and dedication, the challenges and solutions you raised are helping to frame the national debate on how to make the outdoors relevant and accessible to all Americans. The report to the President marks the beginning of what we believe will be a long and transformative dialogue and partnership between the federal government and the people we serve. As we begin to implement the recommendations in the report, we will seek new ways of doing business, looking to replicate and expand successful models we witnessed at the local level. We will collaborate with groups in the public and private sectors, and we will pledge to be a better partner by stepping up transparency, efficiency, and coordination. We will continue to engage with people we met over the summer, and will reach out to new audiences as we seek to advance the President's agenda on America's Great Outdoors.
