Group Green Exercise refers to physical exercise undertaken in natural environments carried out as a group.[1] Physical exercise has positive outcomes for both physical and mental health,[2] there is growing evidence confirming the benefits to be had from contact with nature,[3] while the work of Prof. Jules Pretty at the University of Essex has revealed the synergistic benefits of combining the two in green exercise.[4] New research, by Auckland University of Technology, is now investigating the additional social, physical and mental health benefits of Group Green Exercise.
