The Wildlife Gardening Forum is seeking an academic to put together threeshort reviews on Wildlife Gardening and Human Health and Wellbeing. The task will be available as a part-time consultancy and the fee is set at £1,000.
The project is managed by the Human Health and Wellbeing Working Group of the Forum, and the immediate supervisor is Dr Rebecca Lovell of the University of Exeter's European Centre for Environment & Human Health.
The three reviews will cover:
#The evidence that wildlife gardening and green space and exercising in it is good for our physical health, aiming to shatter negative myths.
#The evidence that wildlife gardening and contact with green space and biodiversity is good for our mental health in relieving stress, helping concentration etc
#The evidence for how management of green space for wildlife and people contributes to community function and cohesion. How communities can plan and develop their own area, improving wellbeing, reducing crime levels, litter and vandalism.
The forum says the project would suit a recent post-MSc or post-doc person who has a science or medical/sociology background.
