I’ve been working on #PeopleAndNature for @NaturalEngland for 3 years now and the results of our first children’s survey truly surprised me. We asked children 8-15 about nature during coronavirus revealing real difference between adult and child experiences. Results thread. 1/
Only 25% children said that they had spent more time in nature since coronavirus- far fewer than 45% adults asked the same question. 60% children reported spending less time outside. 2/
Shockingly, almost half of all 8-15 year olds said worry about coronavirus was stopping them spending more time outside. This was much higher than for adults. /3
