Connecting with nature: greening schools, citizen science and urban ecology

Currently more than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas and that number is projected to grow. It is estimated that by 2050 two thirds of the global population will live in cities (World Urbanisation Prospects). In the midst of rapid urbanisation people have disconnected from nature.
