Nature connectedness is the extent to which individuals regard nature as part of their identity. Research showed that a high degree of nature connectedness has a positive impact on people's physical and mental well-being, as well as increasing support for nature conservation and nature-friendly behaviour.
We designed a four-week programme aimed at increasing participants' nature connectedness. The quantitative data indicate a rather limited positive impact of the programme on nature contact, nature connectedness, mental well-being and sustainable behaviour. The qualitative data obtained through open-ended questions, and interactions during the weekly meetings do indicate a greater positive impact in 18 of the 19 participants who remained from the initial 40.
The attractiveness of the programme scored very well.
