Please join us if you are interested in understanding more about the latest research to have used some of the UK’s extremely valuable ‘secondary’ datasets to examine the varying relationships between human health and wellbeing and the different types and qualities of natural environments.  

We will  have keynotes from Dr Gemma Harper, chief social scientist at DEFRA, and Professor Ken Norris of the University of Reading and lead author of the UKNEA biodiversity chapter. Mr Dave Stone, Deputy Chief Scientist at Natural England, and Dr James Smith of Public Health England, will reflect on the implications of the findings for policy.

We will also have plenty of time to discuss, as a group, the next steps in understanding more about how natural environments relate to health and wellbeing.

Who should come

Researchers, policy makers, practitioners and those interested in how the natural environment relates to health and wellbeing
