Social Impact of Conservation

The ‘Healthy Parks, Healthy People Global’ initiative is a prime example of the research which is supported at a high level by National Parks Services in USA, South Africa and Australia. Additional projects such as ‘Rethinking Parks’ from Nesta in the UK also feature significant research which points to the many social benefits.

Social benefits could be grouped as:

  • Building Stewardship [111]

  • Building Community [112]

  • Building Physical and Mental Health & Wellbeing [113]

  • Fostering Creativity and Innovation [114] [115]

  • Pro-social Behaviour [116]
