Launching Liverpool City Region’s Year of the Environment with an event focussed on using the environment to improve health and wellbeing.
This is the year of the environment and at an event in Liverpool we heard from some fantastic speakers about how the natural environment helps health and wellbeing – and the potential to increase the benefits. The day was organised in partnership with Liverpool City Region Year of the Environment, Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership and Voluntary Sector North West. The video gives a flavour of the event, with pledges for the Year of the Environment. Podcasts of presentations listed below can be found on our Audioboom channel, here: https://audioboom.com/dashboard/4939670
Innovation Agency Chair and adviser to the Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor on the natural environment, Gideon Ben-Tovim OBE describes his wish for the 2019 Year of the Environment. The North West Coast has the best natural environment in the country - and we all need to do our bit to help protect and improve our natural surroundings.
