Professor Catharine Ward Thompson, University of Edinburgh

Thursday 10th May, 17:30-18:45

Drawing on her research and recent work for the World Health Organization European Region, this lecture discusses the importance of landscapes for humans: how we understand links between the outdoor environment and health, and what the challenges are for enhancing access to ‘salutogenic’ landscapes.

Free admission, all seats are allocated on a first-come first-served basis.

Public lectures at Newcastle University are free and open to all. The aim is to offer a programme that will inform, stimulate, entertain, and excite debate.

Many speakers are leaders in their field and all have something of special interest to convey. The lectures cover a wide range of disciplines and frequently include key contemporary issues, particularly those that affect our daily lives.

Any views expressed by speakers are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Newcastle University.

All lectures are free and open to all, with spaces allocated on a first-come first-served basis. For more popular talks an overspill room will be in operation.

Recordings of some past lectures can be found here.
