FIONA HARVEY, Accounts Director, BECG
Fiona will be introducing BECG’s recent research report, Building Health: a Report on Health and the Built Environment.
The report focuses the importance of parks and green spaces, active commuting, good air quality, as well as the potential of healthy placemaking. I’ll also be talking about another health focused project called Acres of Nature. As one of the largest corporate landowners in the UK, United Utilities has access to an incredible range of recreational sites across the North West – the Acres of Nature campaign is focused on promoting these sites, helping people to get healthy and get outside.
GEORGIE SOWMAN, Co Founder, NHS OCEAN PHE Physical Activity Champion NE, RCGP Climate and Ecological Emergency Advisory Group HENEE Faculty of Sustainability, NE Sustainability ICS
The NHS Ocean is a group of motivated individuals from healthcare, marine science, environmental/public health, commercial shipping and active living. We work in our own time to ensure ocean health is considered and where appropriate included within healthcare strategy.
We aim to conserve and protect coastal and marine ecosystems through minimising harm resulting from the procurement and delivery of healthcare whilst increasing awareness of the benefits to human health and wellbeing from healthy seas, coasts, and waterways. We wish to promote the ethos of the Ocean and Us, recognising all interactions must take place with care to minimise harm whilst improving access to high quality blue spaces for all, reducing inequalities, and enhancing the health and wellbeing of our population. We listen to increase our understanding of the complex interface between the delivery of healthcare, procurement, economics and the planet; aiming to educate both healthcare professionals and the public on the interdependence between human, planetary and oceanic health.
Each webinar lasts from 11:00 to 12.20.
We look forward to welcoming you.
