What is Nature Connect?

Nature Connect project will run regular group activities in three urban locations (Norwich, King’s Lynn and Great Yarmouth) to help adults to develop a deeper contact with nature for improved resilience and overall better good mental health. 

The project will include the following elements:

 
  • Resilience workshop

The project has been influenced by the Nature Connectedness research group at University of Derby.
