Plymouth University and Natural England, held a conference last week that brought together key players from the research and policy communities in order to:
- provide a forum for learning from international research and policy
- help inform policy directions in particular the potential for learning in natural environments to develop characteristics that are precursors to attainment and enhanced employability.
- identify shared research priorities that will tackle the key challenges for policy development both nationally and internationally.
The conference was aimed at policy makers, civil servants, and the voluntary sector across a range of related interests including health, education, urban planning and volunteering, at educational, social care and health sector professionals, the research community, and local and national delivery organisations who promote large scale health and learning in natural environment programmes.
