Monday thought of the week: we don’t really need the science

A thought:

There are stacks of studies demonstrating a link between access to quality green spaces and improved concentration and behaviour, better health and increased environmental awareness.

And yet, we don’t really need the science – do we? We know that being in green spaces is good for us. You just need to go and run around in a park for a bit and feel the benefits. You don’t need to sit around by the computer reading back issues of the British Medical Journal.

– Helen Meech, “It’s time we gave our children permission to get outside and get dirty,” The Guardian (July 16, 2014)
