Researchers at USW are part of team which is working on a project to understand interactions that children and young people have with their natural and built environments.

Children aged between 12 and 16, and their parents or carers, are being asked to take part in the INHABIT project, which grew from last year’s Welsh Crucible. 

Participants are asked to complete a questionnaire about active travel. These data will lead to a larger project on active travel with three focal areas - health benefits, environmental impact, and accessibility.

The team includes Dr Tracie McKinney from USW, and academics from Cardiff, Bangor, Swansea, Aberystwyth, and Cardiff Metropolitan Universities.

The questionnaire can be found here: INHABIT Holiadur Rhieni / INHABIT Parent Questionnaire. There is also a young person's version of the questionnaire.
