Videos of our conference speakers are available to view on our videos page. Thanks to John Popham from Citizen’s Interactive Broadcasting for uploading these videos from the live stream.

Dr William Bird’s presentation on how green spaces and the built environment affect health behaviour was a great hit with conference participants. Beginning his talk with the evolution of humans, Dr Bird then shared some fascinating evidence about the effects of being near to trees and plants on our health and performance. He reminded us of some basic cellular biology, described some startling health issues and left us with some great practical examples of ways to get people moving which he has helped to develop as a founder of Intelligent Health.

Below is Dr Bird’s talk which inspired our conference participants to get out and about in green spaces!
