Outdoor Environments for Health and Well-being is an international master’s program offered at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences at Alnarp¸ aiming to achieve a Degree of Master of Science with a major in Environmental Psychology. The program is for students interested in how the outdoor environment and elements of nature can be strategically used to benefit people’s health and well-being. One of the courses, Nature Based Interventions, focuses on how different types of natural settings can be used for interventions as part of treatment, rehabilitation, and programs for the prevention and promotion of healthy everydayhabits in different user groups.Based on the current knowledge and state-of-the-art of nature-based intervention, students learn why and how natural environments can support humans’ health promotion. The knowledge can be used to improve planning, as well as choice of and/or design of places for nature-based interventions. This fact sheet is the final product of the students’ work within the course Nature Based Interventions during the school term of 2021. The students worked in groups to produce a poster and abstract for the course conference as part of the course examination.
