Learning in the Outdoors: Commissioned Reports by Natural England (2011)

The UK's Natural Environment White Paper - The Natural Choice: Securing the Value of Nature (Dept. for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs 2011) sets out the need to strengthen the connection between people and nature, and gives an explicit call for every child in England to be given the opportunity to experience and learn about the natural environment.
