The Good and the Bad: Reconciling Nature’s Impact on Health to Improve Nature Programs

Courtney Schultz, PhD,  Executive Director, Health & Technology Partners

Nature spaces play an important role in community health, with benefits across physiological, psychological, social, and spiritual domains. At the same time, encounters with nature can have negative health outcomes. How do we address this duality? This workshop will discuss the growing evidence and research on the benefits of nature, highlight some of the current interventions and strategies being employed to equitably expand access, and make the case as to why a more balanced conversation can lead to equitable and improved health and nature programming. Participants will practice applying a balanced lens to their own programs to find solutions to participant barriers. Format: Workshop; Length: 3 hours; Group Size: 10-20
