Have you ever noticed how much better you feel after a walk in nature? Time in greenspaces not only improves our mental well-being, it has also been linked to a decreased incidence of health issues such as respiratory and heart conditions.

Come learn about the growing evidence of the benefits of healthy ecosystems on human health and well-being. Discover the basics of eco-health, the science behind it, and even get a chance to practice it.
