“Green Care”: The potentialities of the use of Nature Therapies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


We live in a world where everyday life is made easier by new information and knowledge technologies and increased mobility. Whereas, at the same time, the contact with the natural environment is decreasing. More than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas with high population densities, low air quality and, in many cases, low or no access to quality green areas. We are increasingly discussing the “healing” role of nature, the need to regain the ties with it and the
therapeutic, spiritual and psychological benefits that derive from its enjoyment.
