SAANZ Outdoor Recreation and wellbeing

In conjunction with the Lincoln University, the Trust presented to the SAANZ (Sociological Association of Aotearoa New Zealand – http://www.arts.canterbury.ac.nz/lsap/saanz/index.shtml) annual conference on 4 Dec 2014.

The presentation linked research establishing the benefits of outdoor recreation with health and wellbeing, and the negative impact of the earthquakes on this; the inter-generational nature of participation in outdoor recreation; and the role that long-distance walking trails can play as a sustainable form of outdoor recreation to grow participation. It then presented the Spine of the Lizard project as a local exemplar putting the findings of this research into practice.
