Young people are calling for the opportunity to learn in and about nature every day
Students, parents and educators have been sharing their experiences of the benefits of learning with nature:
"I find going out in the natural environment relaxing. I feel happy to be with nature"
"My children are happiest and heathiest outside so take in the most information. They have a great understanding of their environment and I think every child deserves that"
"Children love learning about nature and it's so important to help educate them, for the future of our planet"
Did you know many students spend less time outdoors than maximum security prisoners?
Young people know they deserve better. Across the UK they are calling for more opportunities to learn in and about nature. Your support can help make that happen.
A number of schools are already seeing positive effects including:
The recent announcement of a new Natural History GCSE is a fantastic step, but more can be done! Our Bright Future believes learning in and about nature should be embedded across the curriculum, for all ages and throughout all subjects.
Help policy makers understand the benefits of learning in and about nature; that way it can become embedded in the education system.
