Learning from Trees: Life lessons for future generations

For the past six years, in the lead up to National Tree Day, Planet Ark has published reports based on the research it has commissioned exploring Australians’ contact with nature.

The survey was designed and commissioned by Planet Ark and conducted online by consultants Kimberlin Education in April 2017.

Previous Planet Ark reports for National Tree Day have covered the dramatic changes that have taken place over just one generation in the way children play and interact with nature, highlighting the physical and mental health benefits for children of contact with nature, and parents’ understanding of these benefits.

Planet Ark has examined the long-term implications of reduced contact with nature during childhood on the future happiness and wellbeing of today’s children, and explored how time in nature can enhance areas of life that Australians are most passionate about: health, happiness, learning, relaxation and relationships.
