Welcome to the Global Green Space Report 2013

There are many benefits to spending time in gardens, parks and forests, but with the majority of people now living in cities, our contact with Green Spaces is declining year after year. As an inspiration to reconnect with the outdoors, we invite you to enter a Green Space by listening to the soundtracks below and to read our report to learn more about the importance of Green Spaces in our lives.

About the report

This year's Global Green Space Report explores people's relationships with forests, parks and gardens around the world. The findings reveal cause for both concern and optimism, and give inspiration for the future. They converge in a simple statement: Green Spaces are good for us; we would benefit from visiting them more often than we do - and so would our children.

However, the time we spend in Green Spaces
is actually declining, and so is our knowledge about them. The question now is, what does that mean - and how do we reverse the decline?
