Kari Svenneby brings a unique Scandinavian perspective and flair to her programs about nature and getting families to embrace it daily. Friluftsliv (Norwegian: “fresh air life”) was a gift from her parents teaching and is almost impossible to accurately translate, as it is a state of being in action and interacting with nature instead of intellectualizing its parts. She walks her talk both online and in her community to pass on that way of being to her family and her audiences.
Classically trained chef, librarian, mother of two and founder of Activekidsclub.com, Svenneby embraces the analogue of nature and food with the digital power of social media, television production and web publishing to champion her message.
Recently thought to be “old school” knowledge is given permission to take its place again in communities, schools, daycares, parks and backyards.

Kari Svenneby has a unique cultural perspective, both as a parenting/lifestyle expert and her education. She speaks English, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish understands German. Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Germany are countries that are leading the world in outdoor learning and outdoor family life and a lot of her outdoor play content has been inspired by her upbringing and research in the Scandinavian countries. Specifically her mantra: “There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.” A Norwegian saying that has been widely known because of her online content. (videos, post how to dress for the weather).
Researcher for television production
"I coordinate family playgroup 3 times a week. These are “mommy & me” playgroups held at our preschool facility. Listening to the webinar encourage me to move ahead with plans to operate an outdoor playgroup".
"I was able to utilize the training, I work with a program that provides education and resources to childcare providers and parents and we've discussed outdoor play a lot, especially during the snowy months when providers are more hesitant to take their children out."
