“Nature provides both the greatest threat and the greatest opportunity for our communities, campuses and cities.”
Join a range of international experts on 14th October to examine how future planning around greenways and blueways can offer nature based solutions for physical and psychological wellness
MINDSCAPE explores the fusion of mind and landscape, and how our emotions map to places. Our unique relationship to nature, our connectivity to forests, rivers, parks, trees and waterscapes will be discussed in terms of cutting-edge research and innovative practice. We address the opportunities that interacting with nature can have for health, well-being and increased environmental awareness, with lessons for policy-makers, practitioners and those engaged in the promotion of outdoor activity.
What is the theme? The theme of this inaugural event is ‘Well-Being for Healthy Campuses and Healthy Communities’ and it aims to share and discuss practice and innovation in this space with particular experiences drawn from case studies, world leading research and personal narratives.
Who Should Go? All are invited to attend, and MINDSCAPE will be of particular interest to researchers, policymakers, students in environmental, well-being and outdoor activity sectors, those in sport bodies and physical activity promotion, members of NGOs and agencies interested in health, well-being, nature and our environment.
The conference will also include a series of presentations from practice based experience in engaging with citizen led science and communities followed by a panel and audience led discussion on addressing benefits, challenges and needs for such engagement. A range of fora will be employed to maximise the interactions including our outstanding keynotes, workshops, Table-Top discussions, Walk n’Talks, and Elevator Pitches from different stakeholders.
