Cambridge workshop, 8th July 2015
The workshop was broken down to two parts:
- A morning session designed for those working in the health sector in Cambridgeshire
- An afternoon session for those responsible for access to the natural outdoors across the East of England, which also involved some health sector representatives. The afternoon session included a ‘Green Dragon’s Den’ in which participants were invited to prepare and present proposals for a project that delivered health outcomes through increased access to the natural outdoors.
