“It’s called outside”: Nature, parks and health

Trevor Hancock

This presentation looks at the 100/90/80 rule and shares research about the benefits of a strong connection with our environment, arguing that beauty, such as we find in nature, is really a fundamental determinant of health. Attendees were urged to acknowledge and address inequalities to access facing parts of our populations noting that to ensure connectedness for all we must "preferentially build beautiful spaces in low-income areas".
