    Building Connections with Nature

    Tuesday 1 December, 10am - 4pm

    Perth Museum & Art Gallery

    The 'Connected to Nature' task group is delighted to announce an exciting full day event in Perth, which will bring together academics, practitioners and other professionals from teh field of outdoor environmental learning together to share an understanding of the latest research on teh value and impact of connections to nature.

    The focus will be on children's connections whilst also recognising the important role that adults have in influencing opportunities for connecting to nature, as well as fostering their own lifelong connection.

    This will be an interactive day, looking at how connections to nature can be facilitated through some practical sessions and discussions on how they can be measured.

    Whilst the value of connections for children is well documented, there is less on how we can measure and assess its impact for the longer term. Key outcomes of the day therefore will be:

    • to identify research opportunities to further develop and enhance how we can measure the impact of connections to nature
    • strengthen links between practitioners and researchers
    • foster a wider understanding and recognition of the importance of connection to the natural world

    This event includes refreshments throughout the day and a lunch. The cost is £25 to cover costs.
