Student opinion on access to nature and education action

In August 2023 we asked students about their relationship with, and access to, nature and their university/college’s action on nature. The survey was sent out to TOTUM cardholders and 2925 students responded.

Some of they findings are:

  • 88% of students feel they can have fun and enjoy themselves in nature
  • 19% of students don't have way to get to places where they can enjoy nature near them
  • 86% of respondents think that all universities/colleges should take action to protection and support nature on their grounds or on other land they own
  • 64% of respondents think their university/college should provide opportunities for students to experience nature

The survey results have been weighted to be nationally representative of the UK higher education student population - no equivalent statistics for further education are available.
