The Naturist Society has been a leader in promoting body acceptance and nude recreation for more than 20 years.
"Officially, The Naturist Society was formed in 1980. Unofficially, however, it goes back much further, to the American "free beach" movement of the 1970s and, earlier still, to a back-to-nature ethos that emerged in Europe during the industrial revolution."
The Naturist Society is also the home of Nude & Natural (N) magazine, the leading publication on naturism in the United States and the authority on socially responsible and adventurous social nudity.

The Naturist Action Committee (NAC) exists to advance and protect the rights of naturists throughout North America. NAC supports the responsible recreational nude use of public lands.
WNGD is very grateful to the friendly people at the ClothesFree International for their support of our mission and for hosting our web site.

Integral Nacktiv A German outdoor recreation group. Nacktiv is a combination of the German word naked=nackt and active=aktiv. Integral means, that nakedness should not be something hidden, something you must be ashamed of: we integrate our nakedness in every-day-live. We are not only naked at home, but also in many outdoor-activities, such like biking, jogging, walking, riding and so on.
WNGD is a collaborative project founded in May of 2005 by the Body Freedom Collaborative (BFC)
