CNN Research and Studies Volume One, February 2007, Annotated Bibliography
This C&NN resource includes an executive summary of each research report; full citation; and a PDF if available, or a link to each study in its entirety, or contact information if the study is not available online. Some are reports of individual studies in the form of original research; others are a synthesis of reports of various studies. While this is a listing of a sample of outstanding studies, the listing is not intended to be exhaustive. We welcome recommendations for additional research to include.
These research reports meet criteria for:
- Scholarly excellence
- Original research or well-documented syntheses of original research;
- Contribution to understanding the benefits from connecting children and nature;
- Addressing significant categories of benefits, e.g., health, school achievement, problem solving, creativity and self-discipline
- Providing insights and recommendations for policies and actions people can take, from backyards to schoolyards, neighborhoods to municipalities.
