Beyond Greenspace

Beyond Greenspace aimed to improve our understanding in this area by examining how different types and qualities of natural environment have varying relationships with human health and wellbeing. The project used some of the UK’s extremely valuable existing (‘secondary’) datasets to address this research question.
