Nature connectedness, the construct that captures the positive relationship between humans and the rest of nature, has been associated with wellbeing and ecological behaviours. A host of Nature-Based Interventions (NBIs) are now used to support mental health and wellbeing, as well as to promote pro-environmental attitudes and behaviours. Measuring changes in nature connectedness, as well as wellbeing is crucial when undertaking assessment of NBIs, and one of the ways to facilitate it would be through the deployment of digital measures. This PhD project will aim to explore the use of deploying multiple assessment measures digitally in order to measure nature connectedness and wellbeing in longitudinal NBIs.
