It’s more than a learning and teaching campus.
It’s a place that actively supercharges student and staff wellbeing!
In partnership with Macquarie University, we have established a Nature Wellness Living Lab program to test the wellbeing effects of nature. The trail is located at the beautiful Mars Creek (Lakeside), on the Ryde campus.
Using validated psychological scales we continue to test the effects of NatureFix on mood, emotional regulation, attention restoration, wellbeing, place appreciation, nature connectedness, and vitality. Now in its third round of trials, the research program continues to work with staff and students to test and evaluate NatureFix's health benefits and as applications for planetary health, greenspace design, and green prescriptions.
