Junior research group 'GreenEquityHEALTH' - Factsheet I: objectives and first results
The research group GreenEquityHEALTH will provide quantified knowledge on how urban green spaces contribute to the mitigation of climate change induced challenges and challenges from urbanization to improve health, well-being and environmental justice. The project will identify the mediating pathways or direct effects of divers urban green spaces that act to either promote health, encourage healthy behaviours like social interaction or physical activity, or to decrease risk factors such as air pollution or urban heat.
