Nature and Mental Wellbeing - Part 4: Projects to get involved in and overcoming barriers!

 

Welcome!

Last week we spent a bit of time thinking about how to get involved, mostly at an individual level. In this blog I’m going to think about some projects and how we can overcome some of the barriers to building our connection with nature.

 

Projects!

Where to start!? There are so many projects out there that can help us connect with nature a bit more. Some are big, some are small. Lots are local, so it might be worth looking to see if there is anything set up near where you live if you are interested.

There are just tons of things that you can do but I have summarised a few ideas below. It might be there are some things that sound appealing and others that wouldn’t suit you as much. That’s fine! Also it might be that you’re really interested in something that isn’t on the list… Go for it!

Volunteer for a conservation project

Again, there are lots to get involved with across the country. For example:
