This course will explore how natural environments can benefit the physical and mental health of people in a variety of different ways. It will address the relationship between nature and health, how the relationship works, why this matters for the environment, public health and sustainability, as well as how you can apply these learnings in your own practice.
This course investigates the potential for the natural environment to be harnessed as a resource to improve human health and wellbeing. The potential mechanisms, moderators, and applications for these health benefits will be explored, considering large data sets and key studies linking nature and exposure and health, both within the UK and around the world.
Led by national and international experts from The European Centre for Environment and Human Health, this four-day course will be delivered on the 20th, 23rd, 27th and 30th March 2023.
