Understanding the Benefits and Impacts of Outdoor Experiences
Outdoor Adventure as Health Care We all know that being outdoors makes us feel better, but can we prove it? ~Can the outdoors have a direct impact on one's health? ~Can we measure these effects? The Great Outdoors Lab set out to answer these questions and the results are in. Join TYO and Stacy Bare, one of the co-founders of the Great Outdoors Lab, to learn: ~how they went about measuring the effects of the outdoors on health, ~what some of the health impacts of spending time outdoors are, ~how you can incorporate these ideas into your work every day, and ~what you might be able to do to keep the good work growing. This webinar shares how this research can help inform your program design and delivery, as well as how you communicate the impact of your work to external stakeholders.
