The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) is hosting an event about the importance of nature in health and wellbeing.

The natural world and the health of our planet are linked to our own wellbeing, as individuals and as communities. Nature based activities and green, blue and wild spaces can play an important role in helping us to live well.  With COP26 in Glasgow having recently passed, the impact of climate change on communities has never felt more pressing.

Join us for an online session to look together at the ways in which our natural world can support our health and wellbeing, how we can get more involved in nature based activities, and how we can take positive action to care for our world.

To register for the event or for more information, please email the ALISS Programme team at

British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters and electronic note-takers (ENT) will be available for the event.
