Health impacts of biodiversity and ecosystem services (open call) back to the forum
assessing efficient types of blue and green spaces and their characteristics
We are happy to launch the Call for Knowledge to contribute to answer the following question. This Call will end-up on April 18th so please participate now and make it known around you!
"Which types of urban and peri-urban natural spaces (blue and green) and which characteristics (components) of such spaces have a significant impact on human mental health and well-being? "
We will consider both positive and negative impacts, even if the aim of the requester is to promote the creation, design, and management of natural spaces that have a positive effect on health. We also focus here on mental health and well-being and not physical health only.
For more details see the Call for Knowledge attached to this message
