Registration for Healthy Parks, Healthy People has just opened. The 2019 Healthy Parks Healthy People Forum will bring together parks and recreation professionals, health professionals, researchers, policy-makers, academics, students, trainees and community members to share the latest research, best practices, and progressive policies related to the human health and well-being benefits of nature. This includes both direct contact with nature and a healthy environment. Healthy Parks Healthy People is a worldwide movement which was launched by Parks Victoria (Australia) in 2000 to encourage the connections between a healthy environment and healthy society. In Canada, both parks and health organizations have recognized this link and launched their own programs. Backed by a growing body of evidence, Healthy Parks Healthy People has expanded and is receiving global attention. The two-day forum will feature a variety of peer-reviewed sessions generated through the Call for Submissions.
