Natural England have recently published the results of commissioned research of a series of topics some of these will be relevant to Rangers in Scotland.
Natural England commissioned the 3 studies that make up this Report to review and importantly to consolidate the evidence of the benefits of learning in natural environments, including for the first time an estimate of the aggregated economic value of this activity, and the barriers for school and teaching staff to delivery.
Natural England commissioned the two insight surveys in this Report to clarify and prioritise the needs, motivations and challenges for teaching staff delivering outdoor learning in schools across England, and schools from the 4 East London borough around the Olympic Park.
These two Reports were undertaken by a team from King’s College London.
This final Report reviews the role and scope of community-based volunteering in relation to Natural Connections Demonstration Project and shares examples of best practice from across the natural environment, greenspace and heritage sectors.
The review was undertaken by the Institute for Volunteering Research and Volunteering England.
