MENE: Nature Connection Index Core & Boost Data (DATA008)

The Nature Connection Index (NCI) data is collected via the MENE survey and gathers evidence on the relative importance of contact with nature and nature connection, the characteristics of experiences in natural environments that are most likely to support nature connection and delivery of outcomes, and the role of childhood experiences in developing nature connection into adulthood.

Further detailed information on on the development of the NCI can be found in the NCI publication.

A summary of analysis of the NCI data to explore the relationships between nature contact, nature connectedness, wellbeing and pro-environmental behaviours can be found in the report JP023.
