How do people use the outdoors? Was an interesting event as a part of the 2012 ESRC Festival.
This webinar presented findings from the third year of Monitor of Engagement with the Natural Environment survey. Natural England’s social scientist Judith Hannah spoke about people’s use of the outdoors in England; how and why people use green spaces, and how patterns of use are affected by geography and socio- economic factors.
