Connecting Humans and Nature, from childhood experiences to engaged citizenship
CCHN studies people’s connectedness with nature in different contexts and over the human life course. Our mission is to contribute to connecting humans and nature through research and by organizing and encouraging dialogues within and between science and society.
CCHN is based at the Institute for Science in Society and is part of the Science Faculty of the Radboud University Nijmegen.

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.
