Earlier studies have determined that children who lack regular positive interactions with nature can develop apathy, disconnection and even phobias toward it. Working with primary schools in Glasgow and Vietnam, we are measuring children’s sensorial experiences of nature and applying our children-nature-distance (CND) methodology, as we aim to support school design decision-making to enhance children’s experiences of nature and promote improvements in their health and wellbeing.
