A Partnership with Nature
Keywords:Nature-Based Therapy, Nature-Based Therapeutic Services, Biophilia, Nature Heals
Nature-Based Therapy seeks to improve essential components of human health and wellbeing by facilitating valuable opportunities to learn and engage with living, green, non-built nature. There is growing scientific evidence to support the multiple benefits of time spent in nature, urging a call for increased clinical and public health studies to better understand these relationships. Literature suggests that engaging people with nature in lasting and meaningful ways requires intentional activities that relate to everyday life, that bring family, friends and community members together. This paper will examine the foundations of building and implementing one such sustained, structured program at the University of Minnesota, called 30x30 Nature Heals.
