Junior research group 'GreenEquityHEALTH' - Factsheet II: The Value of Urban Parks for Health and Wellbeing.
The GreenEquityHEALTH-project explored ecosystem services provision during recent summer heat and drought periods in two distinct urban parks in Leipzig, Germany, using a interdisciplinary, multi-method approach.
In detail, the objectives were to
- generate empirical evidence on the potential of urban parks to provide cooling under the heat and drought conditions in 2018 and 2019,
- explore physical activity patterns related to divers park characteristics under the heat and drought conditions in 2018 and
- analyse analyse physical and mental health effects related o park visits.
