Het leefbaar houden van steden en dorpen is een belangrijke uitdaging van deze tijd. Daarnaast zorgt klimaatverandering voor een toenemende vraag naar slimme oplossingen om in te spelen op extremere weersomstandigheden. Het vergroenen van steden en dorpen biedt niet alleen een oplossing voor klimaatgerelateerde problemen, maar bevordert ook het woonplezier en de gezondheid van bewoners. Dit dossier laat zien hoe slimme groene oplossingen kunnen helpen bij de inrichting en het beheer van woongebieden ter bevordering van de leefbaarheid en klimaatadaptatie. Thema's zoals biodiversiteit, adaptatie en mitigatie komen aan bod.

Exploring the co-benefits (and costs) of home gardening for biodiversity conservation
Raymond, Christopher M. ; Diduck, Alan P. ; Buijs, Arjen ; Boerchers, Morrissa ; Moquin, Robert - \ 2019
Local Environment 24 (2019)3. - ISSN 1354-9839 - p. 258 - 273.
Ecosystem services - nature - place attachment - restoration - sense of place - well-being

Despite growing evidence pointing to the multiple benefits of home gardening, few studies have considered the health and well-being benefits perceived by gardeners who are principally motivated by biodiversity conservation (i.e. home gardening for biodiversity conservation). This study explores the environmental, social and economic co-benefits (and costs) of home gardening for biodiversity conservation in the City of Winnipeg, Canada. A total of 42 semi-structured interviews (30–60 min each) were conducted with 50 home gardeners who were formally certified or locally recognised for undertaking multiple gardening activities that promote biodiversity conservation. Thematic analysis revealed that study participants self-reported a range of environmental, psychological, physiological and social outcomes associated with their home gardening experiences. Despite home gardening often being a solitary activity, most gardeners valued the multiple forms of social interaction that occurred during important social events in their garden, or when connecting with passers-by. Home gardeners also cited benefits related to connection to nature and place attachment; attention restoration; reduced stress and anxiety; improved mood; satisfaction and pride; increased self-esteem and courage to do things differently in life; and, important education or learning opportunities. However, conflicts relating to the nexus between biodiversity and perceived tidiness of gardens emerged, which raise important ethical and social justice issues for sustainability planning. We compare key insights to the benefits (and costs) of community gardening and make some recommendations for future research, including how to engage more disadvantaged groups in gardening for conservation.

Een plant op je bureau is gezond, zeggen ze. Het groen zou wonderen doen voor het binnenklimaat en de werklust. Bewijzen zijn er echter nog nauwelijks. Een proef op kantoren en in zorginstellingen moet nu uitsluitsel geven.

Voldoende bewegen en gezond eten helpt bij het herstel van ziektes of verbetert de kwaliteit van leven bij chronische ziektes. Helaas lukt het lang niet iedereen om dit toe te passen. Daarom zijn Wageningen University & Research (Division of Human Nutrition, Wageningen Plant Research, Rural Sociology) en AMS institute binnen Flevo Campus het pilotproject Helende tuinen gestart om te onderzoeken of we mensen een manier kunnen bieden die wel makkelijk is om in te passen in je leven. We laten ze samen tuinieren. Jan Eelco Jansma, onderzoeker stad-landrelaties bij Wageningen University & Research, vertelt erover in deze video.
