Florence Williams: Your Brain on Nature: Why Being Outside Makes Us Feel Happier, Healthier and More Creative
Things To Know
IN-PERSON SEATING IS SOLD OUT. ONLINE HOME VIEWING IS AVAILABLE AND REQUIRES REGISTRATION. Journalist and author Florence Williams will present the latest evidence on the science behind why nature is good for us, from cognition to mental health. She incorporates reporting and research from around the world for insights into how being in green spaces changes our brains and physiologies. What constitutes exposure to nature? What is the dose for optimal benefit and how are doctors and patients medicalizing time in parks? How do we best re-connect in a time of increasing disconnection?
