Abstract

The report as a whole sets out the findings from the Scottish Government’s GreenHealth project, which explores the relationship between green space and human health using a range of methods and disciplinary approaches at different scales (individual, community and population). Findings show that urban green and open spaces contribute widely to public health and wellbeing by promoting physical activity and reducing health inequalities while also promoting mental and social health.

The authors named here, led by Catharine Ward Thompson at OPENspace research centre, were responsible for sections 3.2.1-3.2.4 of the final report. Section 3.2 covers 'Landscape Perceptions and Use of Green Space' and sections 3.2.1-4 cover Focus groups; Urban green space and stress household survey; and Urban green space and stress, cortisol survey.

Ward Thompson also contributed to the overall report as co-author, reviewing and editing content.
