Connecting Humans and Nature, from childhood experiences to engaged citizenship

Founding fathers

The CCHN is an initiative of the Foundation Endowed Chair (Stichting Bijzondere Leerstoel) and is financed by IVN nature education, Natuurmonumenten, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Staatsbosbeheer, WNF and Radboud University.
These ‘founding fathers’ gather in an advisory group, also functioning as a bridge between research and practice.
