“Greenspace helps kids flourish” – Karl Rameau
There’s plenty of evidence that tells us how great exercise is for the mental and physical health of both kids and adults and plenty more evidence that tells us our kids are just not getting enough.
But, a growing body of evidence shows strong links between the health and wellbeing of children and living near and interacting with greenspace.
What is greenspace? A natural outdoor environment – a park, a garden, a backyard, undeveloped land.
Researchers recently studied more than a million people and found that the risks of developing a psychiatric disorder were 55% greater for the children that grew up with the lowest levels of greenspace. The same study supported that the longer the exposure to greenspace, the healthier the child would be.
Another study found that exposure to greenspace is beneficial for the mental health of children and adolescents, particularly children with emotional and behavioural difficulties.
Here’s some more of what we know about greenspace and the benefits on health and wellbeing:
- Students have longer attention spans when able to interact with green space
- Exposure to green space improves children’s cognitive development
- Access to parks, gardens and sports fields means we exercise more, which improves our health
- Social cohesion is improved with more green space
- Living near green space reduces stress, improves sleep and general health and helps us to live longer
- Spending time in natural green space reduces risks of developing Type II Diabetes, heart disease, preterm birth and premature death
