编辑点评: 英国一家民间组织“国民信托”公布的一份调查报告显示,如今,12岁以下的英国孩子有三分之一从来没有上过墙、爬过树。为此,该组织推出了一项名曰“12岁前要做的50件事”的活动,旨在鼓励少年儿童多多出门玩耍,接触自然。

12岁前要做的50件事

Today's youngsters may be a dab hand at video games, but how many can lay claim to being expert tree climbers or rope-swing acrobats?
如今的年轻一代能手握游戏机浴血奋战,却有多少能自称爬树能手或者秋千上的杂技演员。

According to research commissioned by the trust, fewer than 10 per cent of children regularly play in 'wild places' and 10 per cent cannot ride a bicycle.
根据“国民信托”的一份调查报告显示,如今,10个孩子里就有一个不常去野外玩耍,10个孩子里有一个甚至连自行车都不会骑。

Meanwhile, on average, children spend four-and-a-half hours a day sat in front of a TV or computer screen, according to recent research.
调查还显示,孩子平均每天花在电脑或电视机前的时间有近4个半小时。

The National Trust today launches a nationwide campaign to encourage sofa-bound children to get outside, exploring and having adventures.

The trust is challenging children to tick off every item on its list, including kite-flying, watching the sun rise and getting behind a waterfall
“国民信托”鼓励孩子们去挑战列表上的每一个事项,像放风筝,看日出,站到瀑布后面等。

While damming streams and building dens may be basic rights of passage for their parents' and grandparents' generation, the National Trust is offering a helping hand for today's youngsters who have yet to experience such character-building activities.
筑水坝和筑巢对于他们的父母和祖父母而言也许是是一件很容易的事,而如今的孩子却需要通过“国民信托”的帮助才能融入这种筑造过程。

How many children have poked at frogspawn or caught a fish in a net? Have they faced the fear of picking up their first crab or dyed their tongues purple from eating wild blackberries?
有多少孩子戳过蛙卵或者用网捞过鱼?这些孩子因为第一次抓螃蟹或者吃野生的蓝莓时把舌头染成了紫色而害怕过?

The charity's checklist also includes simple pleasures such as running around in the rain and bug hunting, setting up a snail race, flying a kite and making a (delicious) mud pie.
列表还例举了一些简单愉悦的事情,如在雨中跑步,抓虫子,赛蜗牛,放风筝,做泥蛋糕等。

'We're hoping that the nation's children will embrace the 50 things and start having their very own outdoor adventures with their family, with our Free Weekend the perfect opportunity to get outside in the fresh air.'
“我们希望我们国家的孩子能接受者50件事,并以此和他们的家人展开他们的户外冒险,用一个悠闲的周末去享受室外的新鲜空气。”
