Green Space and Health Workshop (Bradford and Airedale)

SH, in conjunction with the Ecosystems Knowledge Network and South Pennine LNP, is planning a workshop on the 25th November bringing together healthcare professionals in Bradford and Airedale Districts and leaders of green space projects. The aim is to encourage more people to use green space projects to improve their health.

The event is for CCG representatives • GPs and primary healthcare staff • public health and social care specialists • spatial planners • Local Nature Partnerships and others involved in improving access

The day includes discussing the health priorities of the local area, the evidence base for green space projects and how to measure the health outcomes followed by a dragon’s den exercise where green space projects presented their ideas to healthcare professionals.

Our chair will be Pam Warhurst and key speakers include:

·         Professor Harry Rutter, Senior strategic adviser on obesity, Public Health England

·         Cllr. Hawarun Hussain (Bradford)

·         Dr. Sally Barber and Dr. Sara Ahern, Born in Bradford Project

·         Dr. Zoe Knowles and Dr. Lynne Boddy, Liverpool John Moores University

The workshop will be held at the Advanced Technology Centre from 9.30-3.30. To book your place please do so here

Kind Regards
