ABC National Radio – interview with Richard Fuller

9th June 2011: The Future Tense program on ABC National Radio broadcast an interview this morning with Richard Fuller about the benefits of urban green spaces to our health and well-being, and posing some questions about how we manage our urban green space networks. To listen to the broadcast, visit the Future Tense website.

For more background on the issues covered in this interview, read our papers on the psychological benefits of urban green spaces, and a Europe-wide study of the distribution of urban green spaces that covered 386 cities across an entire continent. For some current urban ecology work, read about Cassandra Taylor’s project on Brisbane’s Torresian crows, Jessica Sushinksy’s work on futures for Brisbane’s biodiversity, and Lucy Keniger’s review of the benefits of interacting with nature around where we live and work.
