Social prescribing and nature based health intervention


Back to presentations: Health and wellbeing in horticulture and gardens
Dr Becca Lovell, Lecturer in Biodiversity and Health at the European Centre for Environment and Human Health at the University of Exeter Medical School Becca focuses on synthesising and translating evidence of the links between nature and health for policy and practice and has undertaken related work for the World Health Organisation, CBD, GO Science, Defra, Natural England and the Forestry Commission. She is interested in the multiple roles of the natural environment in determining population health, ‘what works’ in environmental health interventions and the delivery of ‘green prescriptions’. Becca is currently working on how a better understanding of the social and health values of natural environments could inform decision making. Beyondgreenspace website
