Abstract:
Tackling major public health issues such as rising inactivity levels, mental ill-health and social isolation, together with environmental concerns that people are increasingly disconnected from nature, are high priorities for the UK. Exploring effective approaches is paramount as there is a growing recognition that the health and wellbeing of people and of nature are inextricably linked. Evidence increasingly shows that exposure to the natural environment positively affects physical health and mental wellbeing and increases the desire to protect nature.
