This conference discussed the exciting findings from the four-year Scottish Government funded Green Health research programme which investigated the contribution of green and open space to public health and wellbeing.

This free event provided opportunities to hear from the lead researchers and to consider the implications of the findings for policy and practice. It was open to anyone with an interest in public open space and community health and wellbeing.
