HAPPIA Health and Psychology Principles in Action

Making Healthy Places, RTPI / University of Birmingham

Daniel was an invited speaker at our ‘Making Healthy Places’ event for planners, practitioners, researchers, and students who are interested in making our urban areas healthier to live in. Daniel gave a compelling presentation that clearly demonstrated the benefits of green urban areas for our health, and showed that just taking a short walk through greener parts of our local towns or cities can has a measurable effect on our well-being and decision-making ability. It was fantastic to hear such important evidence so simply and enthusiastically presented”.
