Research project: The Wonder of Nature

Currently Active: 
Yes

The focus for the Wonder of Nature project is designing, implementing and evaluating ways to improve public connection and engagement with nature.

Dates: September 2019 – December 2020

Drawing on evidence-based research, we are working in partnership with the National Trust at their Mottesfont estate in Hampshire, to test an innovative model for engaging people with nature, both emotionally and cognitively. The outputs include a pedagogical toolkit for designing and delivering 'Discovering Nature' walks and talks for those with minimal knowledge and experience of nature. These walks and talks are complemented and enhanced by the development of an online and face-to-face community of interest for those with a common interest in nature at the site, such as visitors, outdoor guides, countryside rangers and local experts.
