Summary:imageThis report was commissioned by the Sustainable Development Commission (SDC), as part of their project Every Child’s Future Matters. It was researched and written by the centre for well-being, nef (the new economics foundation).

Key objectives of the project, as identified in the tender brief, were as follows:

1. To review research that has examined correlations between the environment and the physical

and psychological well-being of children, now and in the future.

2. To analyse how the outcomes of Every Child Matters (ECM) can be met through application of

sustainable development principles.

3. To identify potential changes to ECM outputs and indicators that would allow ECM to better

incorporate an environmental dimension.

4. To provide evidence, where possible, on the effectiveness of different types of programme or

project delivery and their impact on children and young people’s well-being.
