CEP'S CLARE TWIGGER-ROSS PRESENTING AT IAPS CONFERENCE on People-Environment STUDIEs
CEP's Dr Clare Twigger-Ross will be presenting at the 24th IAPS conference (International Association for People-Environment Studies). It is hosted by the Environmental Psychology Research Groups at Lund University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in southern Sweden and takes place from 27th June - 1st July in Lund and Alnarp.
The conference will address the study of the interrelations between the social, the built and the natural environment, and the impacts on them. The conference theme turns the spotlight on to what is at the core of the bigger issues related to global sustainability – the actions and everyday lives of humans.
Clare will be presenting at the following sessions, on Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29, drawing from the findings of two of CEP's recent projects to discuss:
- Unpacking the relationships between green spaces and social cohesion: a brief overview of evidence and practice across the EU (Project insights: The health and social benefits of nature and biodiversity protection)
- Developing frameworks for understanding and evaluating community resilience to flood risk: evidence from the UK (Project insights: Flood Resilience Community Pathfinder evaluation)
