Enhancing the health and wellbeing of planet and people: Are they mutually exclusive?
Date: Thursday 8 June 2017
Time: 17:30 - 18:30
Venue: James Graham, Headingley Campus
Speaker: Pam Warhurst CBE
Human health and our environment: Partnership or pill?
This session focuses on the interplay between two major interrelated issues confronting societies today: concern for the health and wellbeing of populations and the state of the natural environment. A growing body of research from a wide range of disciplines indicates that experiences in the natural world facilitate the enhancement and maintenance of health and wellbeing. Although the links between environmental experiences, mental health and psychological wellbeing are commonly accepted, the nature of these links and the ramifications for nature are less well explored. The session will be an interactive session that aims to bring together practitioners, policy makers and academics in a collaborative and supportive manner.
