Adults Need Nature:
Creating opportunities for whole-of-communities to enjoy the many benefits of nature
We can all find ways to bring more natural experiences into our lives and reap the health benefits of doing so. Regular connections with nature can transform the way we learn, work and live.
Research shows that positive nature-based and place-making experiences have direct benefits on our health, wellbeing and productivity. Where experiences with nature can significantly improve sustained attention, cognitive and motor functions, self-esteem, physical and mental health.
Our vision is to support holistic approaches where nature can become part of community everyday living, resulting in a wonderful array of social, economic and environmental benefits. Where we are exploring new approaches to share ideas, lessons and stories through facilitating the exchange of information and mentoring and valuing the importance of community knowledge as places of learning and teaching.
We invite you to explore our stories, information and projects on how whole of community can play a more active role in nature and place, so we can all enjoy the benefits – for people and planet.
