A walk in the woods or a walk in the mall? Does it make any difference? Recent research suggests that nature has special benefits ranging from stress inoculation to social cohesion. Creation and preservation of the natural environment is more than an aesthetic choice; it is an important component of well-being. In this lecture, the benefits of nature for psychological well-being, implications for planning, and the impact of loss of natural environment will be discussed.
