What is naturism?

"Naturism is a way of life in harmony with nature, characterized by the practice of communal nudity, with the intention of encouraging respect for oneself, respect for others and for the environment."
Naturism is the practice of complete nudity in a communal setting. While this may be its most obvious definition, it is part of a much wider context.
The purpose of naturism is to promote wholesomeness and stability of the human body and mind. Naturism also promotes optimum health through complete contact of the body with the natural elements;....sun, wind, air, water.
It is associated with an enlightened, holistic approach to nutrition, physical activity, mental functioning, and social interaction.

Naturism is founded on family participation.
Children in naturist families learn to appreciate the body as part of their natural environment. They grow up with healthful concepts and accept the physical nature of both sexes and all ages without fear or shame of their own or others' bodies.
Nude living thus removes apprehensions and barriers which have hindered communication between people and appreciation of the environment.
It leads to healthier and more humane living: richer and simpler, enlightened by joy and freedom.
And last but not least, to get to know the importance of taking care of the environment.
Naturism has always claimed its attachment and respect to the environment.
