Environmental Engagement Index 18 January 2021

Minister launches Environmental Engagement Index for Northern Ireland

 
index
Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, Edwin Poots has announced the launch of the Environmental Engagement Index for Northern Ireland.

The Environmental Engagement Index is unique to Northern Ireland as we lead the way in exploring engagement and connection to nature by using this yearly survey. Research has shown that if people are engaged with nature they are more likely to look after it.

A baseline survey has already been completed to look at how connected the people of Northern Ireland are with their environment across a wide range of demographics such as age and gender. The results of this will be used to track changes in the relationship between society and nature over time using an annual survey.

The fun part is being able to find out your own engagement score and compare it to that of your friends and family, as well as to the Northern Ireland score. You can do this by answering the same questions online. You can find it on the Live Here Love Here homepage or by searching for EEI Northern Ireland. This web application will also point you to some great places in your local area so you can discover new ways to enjoy our beautiful natural environment.
