Children and nature: measuring success?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The organizers of this conference—Frances Harris (Kingston University), Valerie
Gladwell (University of Essex), Liz O’Brien (Forest Research), and Judith Hanna
(Natural England)—wished to bring a range of experts to the table to explore the
topic of children and nature. The aim of the conference was to discuss the many
ways in which the natural environment can contribute to children's health,
education, and well-being. The seminar focused particularly on how success in
engaging with children is measured: what evidence is seen as useful, what
methods are used to measure success. A key aim was to establish how empirical
evidence can be obtained to determine the benefits that can then be used to allow
implementation on a wider scale and for policy development.
