This research project will investigate the interface between
healthy ageing in coastal communities in Northern England and the wellbeing and
sustainability co-benefits of green/blue space, considering their roles in
enhancing the health of older adults, and supporting a safe, healthy and inclusive
progression through the life-course.
By exploring both exposure to and experience of green and blue
spaces in the context of healthy ageing, including barriers and obstacles to
accessing these spaces, we hope to discover ways in which to make green and
blue space more accessible to the people who may benefit most from it.
