Seminar om børn, natur og sundhed

SDCC Health Promotion Research and “Center for Børn og Natur” invite to a research seminar about outdoor play, the role of nature to children and health promotion. Mariana Brussoni from University of British Columbia and Child & Nature Alliance of Canada is visiting Denmark. On the seminar, Mariana will first present findings and experiences from Canada and from her research. Then, three short presentations will introduce perspectives based on Danish research and examples to inspire further discussion about children, nature and health. At the end of the seminar, we will be hosting a small informal session.
