Welcome to Healthy by Nature. In September 2011, 200 delegates (including 27 youth) gathered in Vancouver for a unique forum. This interdisciplinary forum focused on awareness building, partnership development, and action planning, all following the three Healthy by Nature principles:
- Spending time in nature improves human health.
- Human health depends on healthy ecosystems.
- Parks and protected areas contribute to vibrant, healthy communities.
This website provides resources for all interested, such as audio podcasts of the keynotes. Additional content (factsheets, posters and presentations) will be added in early 2012. Download and share the resources. Join our community. Be part of the Healthy by Nature dialogue.
