Walking with Nature

We have developed more Walking with Nature activities this winter to keep you active, connected to nature and doing small kind things to improve the places where you walk.

Walking with nature campaign

Campaigns Details

When & Where

We received so much positive feedback on the benefits of our Walking with Nature campaign earlier this year we decided winter's shorter days were the ideal time for sharing activities and motivation to help more people appreciate the places where they walk.

People with higher levels of nature connectedness are happier, more likely to do things to help nature and care about climate change. 

Researchers have found that there are 5 pathways to nature connectedness:

  1. Contact
  2. Beauty
  3. Meaning
  4. Emotion
  5. Compassion 

We’ll be helping people understand more about these 5 pathways to nature connectedness and how they can be integrated into your regular walks.



We will have different themes throughout the campaign including:

Micro-volunteering
Birds

Notice three good things
Look up into the sky
Woodlands

During the campaign we’ll be suggesting activities that people can do, that will tie in with our themes and the 5 pathways to nature connectedness. 

Let's get started by giving micro-volunteering a try. November's COP'26 summit in Glasgow has shown that we can't always rely on others to take bold action. Micro-volunteering puts the power for doing good in your own hands.

Share what you have been up to on our
Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages using the hashtag #WalkingwithNature.

Our #WalkingwithNature campaign was Highly Commended in the Nature of Scotland 2021 Awards Health and Wellbeing category.
