Nature-based therapies can play an important role in addressing physical and mental health issues, but we need to know more about the benefits and challenges of these therapies. There is growing evidence that spending time in natural and semi-natural places such as urban parks, woodlands, mountains, rivers and beaches can reduce people’s risk of various health and social challenges including heart disease, diabetes, stress, depression, and loneliness and build their resilience to cope with every-day and longer-term life challenges. RESONATE will explore these issues with a review of interventions globally and in-depth exploration of 9 nature-based therapy Case Studies across Europe. Three Social Innovation Actions will develop community focused nature-based resilience Hubs to demonstrate best-practice for scaling-up and scaling-out successful interventions.
