Plants to the Rescue — Mental and Psychological Supporters in the Recession is focusing on areas that have "received less attention", said chairman Professor Geoff Dixon. Bird, chairman of the Outdoor Health Forum, which is campaigning for health professionals to use the natural environment for prevention and treatment, pioneered green gyms, which are now used throughout the UK.
"This conference highlights the importance of plants and well-designed landscapes in the workplace, for recreation and relaxation," said Dixon.
The event is on 30 September at the SCI headquarters in London.
