The importance of urban green and blue spaces for mental health


Spending time in urban green and blue spaces provides numerous mental health benefits. Parks, playgrounds, rivers and other urban green and blue spaces have proven to promote mental health and well-being by reducing stress, enhancing social cohesion, and supporting physical activity.


The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of urban green and blue spaces with social distancing and lockdown measures leading to an increase in feelings of loneliness, anxiety and depression among the world’s populations.


This webinar aims to highlight the experiences of the City of Glasgow and the City of Tampere with regard to the importance and use of public green and blue spaces during the COVID-19 crisis, and their work on preparing for a post-pandemic world.
