The University of Manchester are investigating the health and well-being benefits of green space in cities for older people. (‘Green space' means trees, parks, woodland, ponds, rivers, canals, allotments, and so on.)
The research team are looking for people who are 65 or over who might be interested in taking part in a study that surveys reasons for valuing green space.
The hope is that the research will demonstrate the importance of green space for older people and help eventually to register this importance with policy makers in the City of Manchester and beyond.
The survey can be found below.
