Living Landscapes for Human Health and Well-Being

Featured Speaker: Louise Chawla, Ph.D., Professor Emerita, Program in Environmental Design, and Fellow, Community Engagement, Design and Research (CEDaR), University of Colorado Boulder

Since ancient times, people believed there was a restorative power in nature. This belief helped drive the development of our great urban park systems in the 19th century. Environmental psychologist, Louise Chawla, shares a burgeoning new field of research that has come into its own with the beginning of the 21st century, with strong evidence that we require trees, gardens and wildlife around us for multiple dimensions of our well-being and happiness.
