What do we mean when we talk about ‘nature’ and ‘wellbeing’? How do our understandings of these terms influence our perceptions of the relationship between flourishing ecosystems and human health?
This event will investigate the meaning of ‘nature’ and ‘wellbeing’ in different cultural, environmental, therapeutic, and research contexts. Expert speakers will share their experiences, identifying shared values and points of difference. The event will showcase the perspectives of charities involved in social, environmental campaigning, practitioners interested in innovative and sustainable approaches to care, academics working in cultural, scientific and educational fields, and representatives of local wellbeing initiatives and community groups. There will also be workshops, break out sessions and many opportunities to contribute to the discussion.
