The above infographic represents our progress and some of our impact in the 5 years since starting our Human-Nature social enterprise project.
You can find testimonial statements from participants and beneficiaries dotted around the website, but here’s just a few:
“I have found the Human-Nature activities to be a key part in helping me recover from personal crisis. I am now enjoying many aspects of my life rather than simply surviving.” — weekly participant ‘Natter in Nature’ & ‘Nature Conservation’
“It’s very inspiring. It’s great what you’re doing, on many levels and so inclusive.” — ‘Uplifting Angels’ photo e-book contributor (COVID response).
“I sometimes feel as though I live in isolation, albeit living the dream – a cottage, land, horses, dogs etc, but no people — is it enough? The ‘Natter in Nature’ walks have felt like a life saver to me, adding interest, colour and shape to my life. I am very grateful.” — Nordic Walker and weekly participant with ‘Friends with Human-Nature’/‘Natter in Nature’.
“I think what you’re doing with your photography projects will really really help people – people from all walks of life whether they’re working or not, and suffering from internal/external problems or not. It’s getting people out and importantly, with a focus – a goal, a nice goal!
I think your project is probably helping people more than you know.” — ‘A Moment’s Notice e-book contributor (COVID response).
”Very well planned sessions and very interesting and enjoyable activities. Went home feeling very happy and proud of my achievements.” — ‘Nature’s Ways to Wellbeing’, 5 week Outdoor Wellbeing Programme participant.
“I gained a sense of pride, met new people and loved being outdoors. Totally relaxed after each session.”— ‘Nature’s Ways to Wellbeing’, 5 week Outdoor Wellbeing Programme participant.
“I enjoyed all sessions. The settings and environments were excellent. Very relaxing and perfect for the ‘wellbeing’ aspect of the course.” — ‘Nature’s Ways to Wellbeing’, 5 week Outdoor Wellbeing Programme participant.
“I’ve loved getting to know you and have been inspired by the fabulous work you are doing.”— Professor in Health Psychology, Local University.
