2.4k Links between natural environments and learning: Natural England briefing note EIN017

This briefing note from Natural England is one of a series that summarises evidence of the relationships between the natural environment and a range of outcomes. It focuses on the impacts of learning in natural environments and the impacts of natural environments on learning processes and outcomes.

Its findings include that

  • The weight of available evidence suggests that learning that takes place in the natural environment results in or is associated with a range of positive outcomes for learners of all ages, though particularly for school children, and should, therefore, be supported
  • Extra attention should be paid to supporting participation of those with low incomes to ensure parity in opportunity to participate
