A request from Hannah, a student at the University of Lincoln.
Please help her by taking part in the following short survey
I am currently studying at the University of Lincoln in my 3rd year. I am working on my dissertation project which is investigating the influence nature has on life satisfaction and happiness. The study has been ethically approved by the university's ethics committee and does not require any personal information, unless you wish to receive a summary of the results by providing an email address.
Please could you complete my dissertation questionnaire. It only takes 15 minutes. We are looking for participants to complete an online questionnaire aimed to help us understand the positive effects that our interactions with nature can have on our happiness and life satisfaction. Thank you! https://unioflincoln.eu.qualtrics.com/…/…/SV_4PBjdxn3QlMgRUh
Greta Thunberg and the Climate Crisis
In this passionate call to action, 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg explains why, in August 2018, she walked out of school and organized a strike to raise awareness of global warming, protesting outside the Swedish parliament and grabbing the world's attention. "The climate crisis has already been solved. We already have all the facts and solutions," Thunberg says. "All we have to do is to wake up and change." This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxStockholm, an independent event. TED's editors chose to feature it for you. Watch Video

Free coach travel for children on Sunday coach outings
You can book one free coach seat for a child under the age of 16 for each adult seat you book and pay for in advance - any admission charges will still apply, only the coach travel is free. We realise that it can be expensive for families to visit nature reserves so we are making this offer to encourage more people to bring children with them and encourage them to take an interest in birds, wildlife and our wonderful natural heritage.
