Langdyke members are being urged to consider taking part in a citizen science project that supports the fact that engagement in nature is good for your wellbeing.
Trustee David Alvey is urging you to bring the project to the attention of others. with the aim of discovering the importance of nature-based activities on our wellbeing.
There is more about the project – called Nature up close and personal: a wellbeing experiment – here www.ceh.ac.uk/natureupclose
During this period of lockdown, many of us have learned (or re-discovered) the importance of engaging with nature to our happiness and wellbeing.
But how do different types of nature activities affect us? To help answer this question, join in with hundreds across Britain to take part in the research project.
You’ll learn about some simple nature-based activities, get to experience nature up close and personal, and answer a few questions about your experiences. So, whether you’re a nature nerd or nature usually passes you by – this one’s for you!
Together we can discover how our wellbeing is affected by noticing and connecting with nature. Take part today: www.ceh.ac.uk/natureupclose#CloseToNature.
All the activities are suitable for adults or for families to do together, but the organisers are asking only adults to take part in the wellbeing survey.
The project is open for the next 6 weeks, so anyone can join in at any time. People taking part will be asked to do a simple nature-based activity five times over the week they take part, and let organisers know how it impacted them.
Note the deadline is 25th August
