Did you know that engaging with nature and spending time outdoors can improve your health and wellbeing?

Evidence suggests it not only motivates us to take more regular physical activity but also enables us to connect with and care about our local greenspaces and communities, promoting social contact and intergenerational connections, tackling social isolation, and promoting sustainability.

The natural environment also has restorative qualities and can help reduce stress, improve mood, and enhance recovery. North Ayrshire has an abundance of fabulous green and blue spaces across rural and urban environments, coastal communities and islands, all on our doorstep.

Please use these webpages to find out more about green health activities, and how you can get involved in North Ayrshire.
