Authored by Eco-Health UCD team members Dr Owen Douglas, Dr Mick Lennon and Professor Mark Scott, Green space benefits for health and well-being: A life-course approach for urban planning, design and management collates and reviews the evidence linking health, well-being and green space using a life-course approach. Based on the evidence, cohort-specific and cross-cutting design interventions are identified and a general integrated green space framework for health and well-being is proposed. This analytical lens facilitates distillation of a vast quantum of research and the formulation of specific planning and design guidance for the provision of more inclusive green spaces that respond to the varying needs of people across all life-course stages.
