Four out of five children say they feel more confident in themselves after spending time participating in outdoor activities, according to new UCL research.

The study, commissioned by The Wildlife Trusts, examined 451 children across 12 areas of England who took part in outdoor activities such as identifying plants and trees. The participants completed surveys before and after the activities.
