Improving wellbeing through nature 2020
At a time when government advice was to stay at home to keep yourself safe from Covid-19, we carried out a survey to see how people in Richmond and surrounding boroughs were using nature to support their wellbeing. This report shows that at a time of chaos and uncertainty people used nature to create meaning and certainty in their lives. It also highlights inequalities in access to the outdoor environment in the borough and the importance of nature-rich green space.
The project also explored the benefits of outdoor learning as a resource and considered its place in the London Borough of Richmond. In a final report the project surveyed a small group of people to understand different ways of bringing people together so that their wellbeing would benefit from spending time in nature.
