I am a first year PhD researcher exploring green social prescribing and social justice looking at access to nature and its benefits, and how ethnically minoritised people face additional barriers to accessing nature. The history of British colonialism, migration, enclosures and land privatisation contextualise modern relationships with nature. The idea of a 'nature cure' is explored critically and the locus of health moved beyond the individual, instead found in the ongoing and spontaneous relationality between people and nature. What this means for a socially just green social prescribing programme will be explored through qualitative research.
My research is funded by the ESRC South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership.
