Nature is good medicine

Helping Victorians take advantage of the many health and development benefits of connecting to nature.

Key implementation actions for this flagship will include:

  • Activate community health in nature programs, such as Park Prescriptions, Forest Bathing, Bush Therapy.
  • Grow the range of YouthNatureConnect programs that help teens develop outdoor skills, get fit, connect with their peers, build emotional resilience and enjoy nature.
  • Improve monitoring and reporting of Victoria’s environment, health and liveability outcomes to ensure Victorian’s are well informed about the state of their environment.
  • Develop a Spring into Nature Festival to promote the benefits of getting into nature and protecting it for the health and wellbeing of current and future generations.
