Survey: Is COVID-19 Impacting the Way We Value Nature?

Please consider completing and sharing this survey from the Children & Nature Network by May 19.

In recent weeks, we’ve seen people around the world turn to nature for reprieve and respite from the stress and uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve also seen temporary improvements in air quality and other environmental impacts resulting from the global pause. We are interested in understanding how participants in the broad movement to connect people to nature are thinking about changes in their attitudes and behaviors, as well as societal changes, in response to COVID-19 and shelter-in-place orders. We are also interested in understanding how and if people anticipate their own and others’ behavior to change long-term. We feel this information could have important implications for program and policy priorities in the months ahead. The survey is open from May 12 - 19 and results will be shared broadly.

All responses will be treated with the utmost confidentiality. If comments are used to provide illustrative examples of survey respondents’ attitudes, care will be taken to ensure that any information that may identify the respondent is removed. This survey is a collaboration between the Children & Nature Network, University of Minnesota and many other organizations.

EENC is sharing this as a proud member of the Children & Nature Network and affiliate of NAAEE.
