Blue Heath: Linking the Coast and Wellness

A research drift this weekend led us to an article published by the Huffington Post several years ago titled 'Living By The Ocean Is Good For Your Health'. To fellow lovers of the coast, this will no doubt not come as any great surprise.

The piece did, however, introduce us to The European Centre for the Environment and Human Health who have begun a project called “Blue Health” to study how natural water environments can be used to promote human health and well-being. With broad research already finding strong correlations between people living in greater proximity to the coast and higher levels of mental well-being and physical health, we look forward to what will emerge across this four year long, pan-European project.
