Health & Nature

Seven Waves has extensive knowledge and experience in the field of nature, green space and health.

Seven Waves has extensive knowledge and experience in the field of nature, green space and health, both in terms of managing strategic and operational processes, including as Executive of Nature For Health and Dutch program leader for Green Mental Health, and (helping to) develop and carrying out projects and initiatives that strengthen nature and health, such as Nature on Prescription (for primary care), Healing Landscape and Green for Healthcare.

To this end, Seven Waves works together with foundations, the healthcare sector, municipalities, residents’ initiatives, educational and research institutions, social organizations and international organisations.

In 2020 – in the heart of the corona era – the Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO) complimented the Nature For Health president and Rob Wolters in a public video for the “Healing Landscapes” initiative, stating, in line with our proposal, that nature must be priority number 1 in social recovery from the corona pandemic.

Do you have ambitions or challenges regarding the relationship between health, sustainability and nature? Please get in touch.
