Abstract

Greenspace has a greater impact on health. It promotes health by reducing the exposure to air pollution and enhancing the opportunity for physical activity. A previous study by Dr Mueller assessed the impact of greenspace on physical activity levels in the individuals in European cities.[1] He used three different metrics of greenspace and correlated it with the physical activity levels. The greenspace metrics used were Normalised Difference Vegetation Index [NDVI], proportion of tree canopy coverage and proximity to green land use. Those individuals who were exposed to greenspace had a dramatic improvement in their physical activity levels.
