Nature, Biodiversity and Health
There is a growing volume of scientific evidence showing that ‘greenspace’ is an important resource for our health and wellbeing.

The European Centre for Environment and Human Health is a World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre on Natural Environments and Health, recognising the Centre’s significant contribution to science and policy-making from a decade of interdisciplinary research.
The following research activities demonstrate the breadth and depth of our work in this area.
