Natural England launched our large scale public survey, the Monitor of Engagement in the Natural Environment (MENE), in Spring 2008. Ten years and over 400,000 interviews later, we have learnt a huge amount about how people use the natural environment and what they think about it. Rose O’Neill joined Natural England in 2017 and has since been immersed in all things MENE. In this talk, Rose will share some of the key things she has learnt from the survey and will explore what these insights mean both for development of interventions to encourage more engagement, future research questions and methodological insights.
