Beschreibung

"Sense of place" is a widely discussed concept in fields as
diverse as geography, environmental psychology, and art, but it has little traction in the field of public health. The health impact of place includes physical, psychological, social, spiritual, and aesthetic outcomes.
In this article, the author introduces sense of place as a
public health construct. While many recommendations for
"good places" are available, few are based on empirical
evidence, and thus they are incompatible with current public health practice. Evidencebased recommendations for
healthy place making could have important public health
implications. Four aspects of the built environment, at different spatial scales - nature contact, buildings, public spaces, and urban form - are identified as offering promising opportunities for public health research, and potential research agendas for each are discussed.
