Did You Know? Rewilding Urban Spaces Renders Us Happy and Healthy.

People step outside to go places, often overlooking the presence of green spaces, or lack thereof. Biodiversity, which means all the species of plants and animals present in a certain environment, plays an essential role in promoting and enhancing our mental and physical well-being. Regularly connecting with nature means, among other things, reduced anxiety, lower risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, and less sedentarism. It also means being knowledgeable and having a say on issues pertaining to conservation, local urban design, and environmental protection, according to Dr. Zoe Myers, researcher and author of Wildness and Wellbeing—Nature, Neuroscience and Urban Design (Palgrave Macmillan, 2020).
