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

experience" yesterday. For more information and involved experts see here:
