Half of the world population does not have access to proper medical care. The recent pandemic has put significant pressure on the delivery of healthcare in virtually all other countries. Furthermore, modern lifestyle exemplified by sedentary lives, urban living and work practices, low physical activity, stress, noise, heat stress, and air pollution is behind the growing prevalence of cardiovascular disease, stress, depression, psychological diseases, and immune disruption among others. This contributes not only to Public Health problems but also to increased health care expenditures.
The 3rd World Conference on Forests for Public Health, 4-7 October 2023, in Sherbrooke, Canada, will continue our efforts to find a sustainable direction for the multidisciplinary field of forest, green spaces, and human health. We will emphasize the global message of this Conference: forests, city forests, parks and other green spaces should be incorporated into International Organizations policies and goals, and into National Public Health systems, policies, and practices for a Healthy and Sustainable society.
