Using urban blue spaces to benefit health and wellbeing

Until recently, high-quality research into the benefits of urban blue spaces has been lacking, making it hard to back up decision-making with firm evidence.

Over the last four years, the BlueHealth project has been building evidence to improve our understanding of how better access to quality urban blue spaces can benefit people’s health and wellbeing. So, what evidence do we have that there is a link between blue spaces and better health and wellbeing?

Take a read of our BlueHealth Benefits resource which provides a snapshot of the evidence we’ve collected to date, including useful links and a review of the challenges and opportunities urban blue spaces may face in the future.
