Restoring the Connection Between Forests and Human Health

Forests are among the most biologically rich areas on Earth, home to 80% of global terrestrial biodiversity.

They provide us with oxygen, an array of natural resources, and a source of livelihood. They also play a crucial role in supporting our mental and physical health, yet this is often overlooked within health strategies, education programmes, and in everyday human lifestyles.

Recognizing the extensive benefits and services provided by forests can help us to overcome many of the challenges linked to physical and mental well-being facing Europe today.
