About this event

Join Thriving Communities for their next webinar, where they will hear about the importance of nature connectedness for people’s health and wellbeing and how it links with social prescribing.

It will explain the difference between contact with nature and nature connectedness, and the importance of both in optimising the benefits of nature for health and wellbeing. You will learn about five simple pathways to nature connectedness to improve policy, planning and delivery at both an organisational and individual level.
