Part of the Music Research Seminar Series 2019/20

ECA Wellbeing Week might be over but that doesn’t mean that students’ mental health is any less important. After a week of meditation, workshops and seminars full of self-care tips – and even cute dogs! -  it is hoped that those who attended absorbed the positivity and that, overall, awareness about mental health was raised.

ARCHIVED PROJECT: Facilitating and sharing high-impact research on links between music and health.

As part of the Landscape Design for Health and Wellbeing course students were given the opportunity to visit the Maggie’s Cancer Care Centre at Monklands General Hospital.

This presentation will provide an overview of what we know about the links between urban nature, nature connection and health and wellbeing. International case studies will then be used to highlight practical approaches to applying the evidence base and optimising the wellbeing promoting potential of urban nature.
