Navigating nature's new norms: Investigating the profound impact of climate change on outdoor activities and identifying adaptive strategies
Author(s): Abhishek Saklani
Abstract:
In the context of an ever-changing climate, this research study, titled " Navigating Nature's New Norms: Investigating the Profound Impact of Climate Change on Outdoor Activities and identifying adaptive strategies," delves into the intricate relationship between shifting weather patterns and outdoor pursuits. Drawing insights from 149 participants through a mixed-method approach, we explore the diverse landscape of outdoor activities in terms of both frequency and types. Our findings underscore the significant influence of climate-related factors, including extreme temperatures, humidity, air quality, and unpredictable weather, on participants' well-being during outdoor engagements. This nuanced understanding reveals the overwhelmingly positive impact of outdoor activities on emotional and physical well-being, which has now been hindered due to extreme climate conditions. A key facet of our study is the identification of adaptive strategies that individuals employ to tackle climate-related challenges. These strategies, encompassing timing adjustments, proper clothing, hydration, and protective gear, exemplify the proactive spirit of outdoor enthusiasts committed to their activities despite changing climatic conditions. Despite shared concerns, our participants express optimism through a strong interest in learning additional adaptation strategies. This enthusiasm aligns with the evolving narrative of climate-conscious engagement, underlining the potential for individuals to flourish in the face of evolving climates while still being able to enjoy the great outdoors. In summary, our research encourages a climate-conscious approach to outdoor activities and promotes a culture of adaptability, resilience, and well-being within this dynamic domain, even in the face of extreme climate challenges.
