"There is increasing evidence good quality environments, particularly access to good quality natural environments is a very good way to reduce health inequalities", academic and landscape architect Catherine Ward Thompson has said.
Barry Wilson invited Professor Catharine Ward Thompson for a dialogue to offer her views on green environment, health &wellness, elderly care and other relevant issues during her short stay in Guangzhou.
Catharine Ward Thompson is Professor of Landscape Architecture at the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (ESALA), and Director of the OPENspace research centre.
