• New evidence for childrens visits to the natural environment

    A new report reveals, for the first time, the scale and scope of the visits children in England make to natural environments, including parks, playgrounds and woodlands.
    Natural England, Defra, English Heritage and King’s College London have been working with the Monitor of Engagement with the Natural Environment (MENE) survey to find out about the visits children make to natural environments; where they go, how often and who with.
    MENE, which has national statistics status, previously only surveyed adults over 16. Last year, the survey also included new questions relating specifically to children’s visits, to gather more comprehensive and representative data.
