In this section we look at the importance of contact with the natural world to children and young people. The focus is mainly on learning and playing outdoors. It includes information on what's currently happening, for example the Forest Schools initiative, as well as some of the growing research on how important exposure to the natural world is to young people's well-being. We've also included extensive tips and recommendations and lots of different resources available.
Use the menu on the right to access what's available in this section.
We also have a huge amount of resources for teachers, youth workers etc more generally on confidence and well-being in another part of the site.
