Scotland's United Nations Recognised Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development

Connections with Nature (0-25 years)

This recently revised task group has been set up to understand the level of connection to nature of children and young people in Scotland (0 – 25 years).

Key objectives:

  • To understand what activities enhance connection to nature
  • Identify possible links with factors that impact sustainability
  • Inform policy and practice to enhance nature connection
  • Share how we measure connection


This new group brings together a rich and exciting mix of experiences, skills and expertise as well as loads of enthusiasm!

The task group will create smaller sub-groups to tackle the four key aims with findings and outcomes shaping a large event in the first part of 2017.

If you would like more information on the task group please contact the group convenor Judy Paul, from RSPB Scotland.
