A survey of 19 countries in 19 countries
(1000 in each country).
To act ever more concretely and work in favour of man's connection with nature, it is crucial to put in place tools to study this connection in order to understand its mainsprings, dynamics and implications.
With this Barometer, we want to encourage companies, political decision-makers, NGOs and citizens to take action to encourage connection with nature and thus preserve and enhance it. This Barometer aims to monitor the development of the human-nature relationship every two years.
The connection to nature is assessed by an index calculated from three scores: cognitive, behavioural and emotional.
These lessons will support the Groupe's approach by identifying priority areas for action and measuring the progress of this connection via an annual update of the barometer.
The study provides major insights on the benefits of an intense connection to nature and calculate a connection index for each surveyed country. On reading the results, a very strong link between connection to nature and the level of happiness and trust emerges: the higher the nature connection score, the higher the level of happiness, resilience and confidence in the future. This is the key lesson of this Barometer. It is now time to act to enable citizens to reconnect with nature and improve the well-being of society as a whole.
