Path for All is launching a six-week campaign to help everyone benefit from connecting with nature while on daily walks. Walking with Nature aims to make it easier for people to enjoy and appreciate the natural environment all around them, by tuning into sights, sounds and scents.
Throughout February and March, Walking with Nature will explore bird song, forests, weather and share activities and knowledge on how best to connect with nature. It will also look at micro volunteering and encourage small acts of kindness such as moving a branch blocking a path, or saying a friendly ‘hello’ to a passerby.
This campaign comes as a UK-wide study shows happiness and life satisfaction are at their lowest levels since the start of the pandemic last March. It also builds on a NatureScot report which found more people reported health and wellbeing benefits from time spent outdoors connecting with nature during Covid restrictions. Seventy percent of respondents indicated that outdoor visits and engagement with nature between August and September helped them to de-stress, relax and unwind, an increase from 63% in March to May.
