We each have a unique relationship to nature. Some of us feel a strong connection to Mother Nature whilst others less so. Nature connection is how we relate to and experience nature. Research shows that people with a strong bond with nature have greater life satisfaction, reduced feelings of depression and a kinder attitude to the environmental.
Nature connectedness is measured through the Nature Connection Index, a scoring system to assess how we relate to and experience nature. The index asks us how strongly we agree or disagree with 6 simple statements about our relationship with nature.
