Connecting With Nature
Connecting with nature
A new initiative; Connecting with Nature which connects people of all ages to nature and the natural environment. The health-related benefits of spending time in nature are thought to include improved attention, cognition, sleep and stress recovery.
Research shows that people with a strong connection to nature are more likely to behave positively towards the environment, wildlife and habitats. Establishing a steadfast relationship between people and nature, is vital for your mental and physical health. One of the greatest psychological benefits related to nature connectivity is increased levels of happiness.
Healthy Green spaces make people feel comfortable and at ease. We offer our local community the opportunity to experience places of natural beauty first hand and observe the positive impact that spending time in nature provides, such as hiking, bike riding, running and much more.
Many families have never had the opportunity to explore the outdoors. This could be for a number of reasons: the cost of travel, perceived barriers or simply lack of awareness and we are fully committed to changing that. This on-going project will help people of all ages abilities and backgrounds to discover the fun there is to be had in the great outdoors.
We are aiming to get more people out into the beautiful nature. Creating greener spaces in our local community will lead to having more cleaner and fresher air. Having beautiful green spaces in our local community will make people want to go outside more.
Our aim is to make our community care deeply about the world which we live in and it’s important that we listen and respond in meaningful ways. To do this we are trying to increase awareness and understanding of taking care of plants and green spaces. We are also trying to establish an ethic of care for our environment by inspiring young leaders and training and empowering the youth.
We are attempting to have more activities in the green space in our local environment, this will improve our community's health as they will have increased time in nature. Abiding in nature reduces stress, sadness, lifts the mood and overall makes us feel better. This is why nature is such an important part of our lives and sometimes we don't take time out to stop and look at the beautiful nature around us.
