Ryan Atkinson is a Master in Public Policy (MPP) candidate at the Harris School of Public Policy of the University of Chicago. His interests include education policy, political science, and human rights. He was a kid when Pokemon was released for the Game Boy and he remembers how much the game influenced his relationship with the natural world. He would later discover that the creator wanted to recreate his experiences of collecting insects, and he thinks that the game showed how a digital experience can influence a child's appreciation of nature.
