How nature changes people: Understanding the benefits of connection 
Nature connection has been shown to have positive effects on human wellbeing, and it can help to encourage people to live more sustainably. But how can you know if the environmental education activities you run as a practitioner are effective in making a lasting difference? Whether you want to demonstrate the impact of your work to funders or potential collaborators, or you just want to improve the way in which you deliver outdoor education activities, this one day course will give you a range of skills to understand and describe the impact that nature connection has for the people you work with. 
This course will introduce some techniques and tools for measuring the impact of nature connection,
and will explore some different ways of understanding the quality of people’s experiences in nature.
It will also examine some of the most recent academic thinking on nature connection, wellbeing and sustainability, equipping you to be confident in talking to sometimes sceptical audiences about the benefits of spending time outdoors.
