Children who feel closer to nature do better in exams

Those children with a connection to nature also tended to exhibit higher levels of wellbeing than their classmates. “That connection to nature is part of a healthy and satisfied life,” Dr Richardson said.

He is quick to insist that what is being measured is not how much time children spend in nature, but the quality of their connection with it. “It’s that feeling of having a relationship to the wider ecology – enjoying it, and finding wonder and awe. An emotional experience in the natural world,” he said.

“You don’t need a wilderness or a fantastic rural environment to experience a connection to nature. You can find it in very modest places: in the park, or in the flowers on the trees in the car park.”
