Facilitated by Positive Steps Outdoors, this session will focus on the importance of getting outdoors and of green therapy for staff wellbeing. The session is open to everyone but will be particularly beneficial for those with management responsibilities.

At times, we all experience poor health and wellbeing. The great news is that you do not have to take huge steps to change this. Wellbeing can be improved by taking some small but simple steps and can be nurtured and strengthened through intentional effort and practice.

In this session, we will explore

In this session we will cover the following:

  • The evidence behind green therapy and accessing the outdoors for improving our wellbeing
  • The status of mental and physical health in communities in Northern Ireland, and the consequences of negative mental and physical health.
  • The influence of work on the mental and physical health of staff, and the impacts on businesses of negative mental and physical health.
  • Changing employee and prospective employee expectations.
  • The evidence base for the value of green space therapy in promoting positive mental and physical health.
  • The value in and return on investment of positive mental and physical health in a work context
  • How Positive Steps Outdoors and Business in the Community can support the promotion of positive mental and physical health.
