Nature, Health & Wellbeing Conference
June 5, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 5:30 pm UTC+1| £18
Hosted by Bristol Natural History Consortium and Natural Academy, in association with West of England Nature Partnership (WENP) and Bristol Green Capital Partnership (BGCP). Part of Festival of Nature 2018.
A healthy environment is the foundation for a healthy society and healthy human life. The wellbeing of ourselves is deeply interconnected to the wellbeing of all of nature. With the Kings Fund estimating that 15 million people in the UK have a long-term condition and with the state of Nature Report saying that Britain’s nature ‘is in trouble’. Is there a way to bring a collaborative solution to both crises? How can we make sure that nature is at the core of developing health & social care services? How can partnerships deliver on the ambitions set out in the 25yr environment plan, to help people and nature recover and flourish. These concepts and ideas will be explored in this interactive and innovative half-day conference bringing together interested individuals and professionals from both the conservation sector and the health sector.
It will include networking lunch, strategic discussions, evidence and research and real examples, with actual experiences, of nature- based services that are operating in the West of England.
Where possible we will be outside in the beautiful setting of Ashton Park estate.
It promises to be a significant gathering of those people who are interested in or working in the recovery and wellbeing of our human and environmental health and how now is a time to bring these closer together.
