GoGreen into 2023: publications of note in the new year
GoGreenRoutes is gearing towards our next Spring School at Maynooth University, Near Nature : Green Space and Environmental Justice. The event aims to highlight how nature and the health benefits associated with it can be more accessible, as GoGreenRotues firmly believes that it is not enough just to bring nature to cities, but to also ensure these green urban spaces and ecosystem benefits are available for as many citizens as possible. Part of this equation is exploring these topics through environmental research to learn more about potential barriers and potential for nature to improve health in many areas of social life.
We are proud to say that our team has many talented researchers exploring intersections of health, wellbeing and justice. Here you can find some noteworthy publications in the field. There are many more and we will continue to highlight them in the coming months:
- Our colleagues at IS Global, Barcelona now released a groundbreaking publication, “Cooling cities through urban green infrastructure: a health impact assessment of European cities Publication” (Tamara Iungman et. al).
You can learn more about the topic on their website.
- Sara O’Malley of Seed City Limerick (Ireland), was a lead author in a recent publication, Mainstream or margins? The changing role of environmental education in Irish primary school curricula, 1872 to 2021 published in the Journal of Environmental and Outdoor Education.
- The evaluation of the 3-30-300 green space rule and mental health - Mark J. Nieuwenhuijsen et. al.
