Parks and nature are important contributors to the prevention and treatment of many human health conditions. We’ve long championed the link between a healthy natural environment and the health and wellbeing of people connected to that environment. As both a registered environmental organisation (DGR 1) and a Health Promotion Charity (DGR 1), the Foundation is in a unique position to develop resources in support of connecting people to nature for health, wellbeing and sustainable natural environments.
The strong connection between the health of the natural environment and human health has long been central to Aboriginal culture. This is captured in the saying “Care for your country, and your country will care for you”, as per the Victorian Memorandum for Health and Nature.
We develop resources to connect people with nature for healthier people, places and planet.
