A positive connection to nature
A growing body of research supports what we instinctively know — that learning outdoors in nature is beneficial in terms of wellbeing. It can improve recovery from stress, cognitive function and creativity. Parallel research into how environments affect the capacity to learn shows the importance of air quality, lighting and acoustics.
Creating a natural learning habitat
The speakers will share their experience gained at policy level along with examples of their work, discussing what they have learned from other projects and how these ideas can be applied across education and learning environments.
