Since ancient times, people believed there was a restorative power in nature. This belief helped drive the development of our great urban park systems in the 19th century. Environmental psychologist, Louise Chawla, shares a burgeoning new field of research that has come into its own with the beginning of the 21st century, with strong evidence that we require trees, gardens and wildlife around us for multiple dimensions of our well-being and happiness. This evidence invites new ways of communicating the value of living landscapes and biodiversity as essential elements of our everyday surroundings.

Living Landscapes is the 2019 Conservation Psychology Institute Keynote Address and a Conservation Conversation of The Academy of Science – St. Louis and the Saint Louis Zoo.
