We know that time spent outdoors in nature can have a profound impact on mental health and wellbeing. Roxanne Green, Groundwork We were all soaked through but laughing at the hilarious situation. Despite the rain, everyone had great fun. Emma, Essex Wildlife Trust Children spend hours staring out of classroom windows to the natural world that surrounds them, wishing they were out there. Jenna Cains, the Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside. There are many opportunities to enjoy the health and wellbeing benefits that connection with nature offers. Paul Martin, Devon Wildlife Trust We love a challenge – give us a lesson and we’ll get you outside. Shropshire Wildlife Trust Spending more time outside has long been associated with improved mental health. This project should bring about real benefits. Hayley Riggs, YoungMinds FSC has years of experience in supporting teachers through training, coaching and mentoring in the outdoors.
