Nature, Health and Wellbeing Continuing Professional Development Course 2022
I am pleased to share with you a brand new course, Nature, Health and Well-being CPD,which will run virtually on Zoom over 4 days on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 – 13:00 UK on the 22nd and 24th March and 5th and 7th April 2022 from the comfort of your home and/or office without the need to travel.
The course will explore how natural environments can benefit the physical and mental health of people in a variety of different ways. It will address the relationship between nature and health, how the relationship works, why this matters for the environment, public health and sustainability, as well as how you can apply these learnings in your own practice. We will investigate the potential for the natural environment to be harnessed as a resource to improve human health and wellbeing. The potential mechanisms, moderators, and applications for these health benefits will be explored, considering large data sets and key studies linking nature and exposure and health, both within the UK and around the world.
We have a fantastic team of experts from the European Centre for Environment and Human Health contributing to the course, some of whom have led on the Nature and Prescription Handbook and have authored the WHO ‘call to action’ on nature, biodiversity and health. There are no pre-requisites or specialist knowledge required to undertake this course, which is well suited to interdisciplinary learning.
