的一部分建立更好的化学文化系列网络研讨会重点关注2021 #MentalHealthawarenesweek(5月10日至16日)主题:获得自然及其对我们心理健康的影响。

Spending time in nature can have a profoundly positive impact on our mental wellbeing. Whether it’s taking part in physical activities, caring for plants or simply enjoying the green spaces around us, there is little doubt about the positive effects it can bring.

但是,并不是每个人都可以平等地获得自然的机会,因此我们必须认识并解决不平等以及如何使所有人都能获得各种形式的自然。

加入我们,了解自然与精神福祉之间的联系,以及这对化学科学中的包容性的重要性。

Our speakers, Alistair Griffiths (Royal Horticultural Society), Anjana Khatwa (Wessex Museums) and Patricia Zurita (BirdLife International), will discuss:

  • the benefits of having access to nature on mental health and wellbeing, and how this connects to the chemical sciences
  • 获得自然和绿色空间的含义,以及访问的不平等以及如何使所有形式的自然都可以访问所有人
  • 环境保护对心理健康的重要性

BSL interpretation will be provided by Rachael Dance and Steve Churchill.
