Northwest Nature & Health Symposium
Northwest Nature & Health Symposium
WhenThursday, Oct. 26, 2017, 8 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Description

This all-day symposium will bring together professionals and community leaders to explore common goals and collective strategies related to the human health benefits of being in nature, from gardens to wildlands. At the intersection of contemporary thinking in healthcare, education, planning, and conservation is a growing recognition that human well-being is interdependent with the natural world: in addition to food, medicine and materials, our mental, physical, social and spiritual health improves by spending time in the calming wonder of natural places. Join us to learn about the latest innovations in research, policy, and practice; discuss common challenges; and identify shared opportunities to collectively, and equitably, expand the potential of nature to improve our health.
