    Abstract

    Health ecology, an emerging discipline, considers human health and well-being, including psychosocial issues such as perception of and attitudes towards wellbeing, in the context of human interaction with their environment (Bhasin, Shampa Nag, 2011). Increasingly the workplace is seen as a setting in which to enhance well-being (Black, 2008). This has resulted in a cross-departmental government programme to improve the health and well-being of people of working age (DWP, DoH, 2008). In June 2011 a small scale study, conducted during a University of Salford Vice-Chancellor’s ‘Thank You’ campus event for staff, captured qualitative data on the perception of, and the motivating factors to engage with the natural environment around campus.
