Improving Wellbeing through Urban Nature



Fiona J. Ferguson

I am a Researcher on WP3, developing a smartphone app which records people’s interactions with urban nature. My interest lies in exploring and understanding nature connection, ways to improve it, and the subsequent effects on wellbeing. For 10 years, I have been Senior Leader & Project Manager on Dunoon Grammar School’s annual expeditions to Costa Rica. I take groups of local high school pupils to carry out various conservation projects and physical challenges in areas of incredible natural beauty, and enjoy seeing the positive effect these experiences have on individuals’ wellbeing.
