European Public Health pre-conference on Nature & Public Health
This conference has been held
9. November 2011
Forest & Landscape, University of Copenhagen invites to the European Public Health pre-conference focusing on the relation between nature and public health.
Research suggests a positive relationship between nature and human health. As a result urban open green spaces can be seen as a resource for promoting public health. However, as people become more urbanized access to nature decreases and an evidence-based approach to city planning becomes fundamental. How strong is the evidence for public health benefits of urban open green spaces and how can city planners work evidence-based?
The conference presents national and international researchers who will present their research focusing on nature’s health benefits for public health.
The purpose of the conference:
- To present research that shows the effect of the relation between nature and the health of human beings
- To create a forum for future interdisciplinary collaboration among the different professions involved
- To offer paper and poster presentations for national and international researchers working within the theme of the conference (see ’call for abstracts’)
The conference is primarily intended for researchers and PhD students from the ’green’ and the ’white’ sector with an interest in the relation nature-health.
