Special Issue "Evidence for Incorporating Green Exercise into Clinical and Public Health Practice"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is preparing a Special Issue entitled “Evidence for Incorporating Green Exercise into Clinical and Public Health Practice”, for publication in September 2019. Recent years have seen an increase in the scientific evidence supporting the hypothesis that the mental and physical health of humans benefits from living near or having access to natural environments. As reviewed by Frumkin and colleagues , the scope of the research in terms of duration of exposure and in the diversity of natural areas with which people engage is wide. This breadth of scope can make it difficult for health-care practitioners to grasp the salient information they need to justify incorporating nature-based therapies into clinical and public health practices. To facilitate the transfer of information from basic researchers to practitioners, this Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health solicits reports of studies that investigate the practice of Green Exercise, defined as physical activity undertaken in natural areas, which can inform the use of Green Exercise in improving health outcomes of individuals and populations.
