Walking with Nature

Our Walking with Nature activities aim to keep you active, connected to nature and doing small kind things to improve the places where you walk.

Walking with Nature

Campaigns Details

When & Where

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 help you to:

Spend time watching birds as a starting point for noticing nature on your walks.

Get into the habit of noticing three good things in nature each day on your walks to improve your wellbeing.

Look up at the sky to notice how it never stays the same.

Go for a walk in the woods to help you to relax.

Undertake practical micro-volunteering tasks to care for where you walk.

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