LI CPD: Health, Wellbeing and Place
27 Jan 2021
Day 1. 2a Creating Healthy Communities: Evidence, policy, practice
We now need to rethink how we understand and communicate the diverse uses and benefits of our green assets. This workshop will discuss the role green infrastructure plays in promoting and protecting the health and wellbeing of the population, and how it can be used not only to meet public health objectives, but wider local priorities. We will also uncover new and upcoming resources that give practical support for the development and maintenance of good quality GI.
