Environmental Justice Issues: The Benefits of Nature
The advantages of spending time in nature are clear: physical, emotional and cognitive benefits have been researched and well documented. Yet our experiences are deeply shaped by our identities, and enjoying the benefits of outdoor places depends on feeling welcome, safe and included. In this online presentation, Diquan Edmonds will share research about how different communities feel about outdoor resources and how to equitably enjoy nature with each other. Edmonds is the education director at the Triangle Land Conservancy.
