Value-based well-being effects of nature – and how to support them via urban planning?The aim is to research how nature supports the urban inhabitants’ value-based well-being: meaningful life, mental health supporting paradigms, empowerment through human agency and good social relations. This research also maps what kind of green spaces provide these well-being benefits so that these areas can be conserved and advanced in the urban planning, also under the pressure of densification of the urban structure.
