Positive Health Effects of the Natural Outdoor environment in Typical Populations in different regions in Europe (PHENOTYPE)

Description:

Indications exist that close contact with nature brings benefits to human health and wellbeing, but the mechanisms are not well understood. Most of the research has been conducted in the Northwest of Europe and USA. This leaves a need for a more robust evidence base on links between exposure to natural outdoor environment and human health and well-being across Europe. Furthermore, inconsistency and variation in indicators for green or natural space have often made it difficult to compare results from different studies. PHENOTYPE is intended to provide a better understanding of the potential mechanisms, and better integration of human health needs into land use planning and green space management.
