  • Abstract in English : The nearby natural environment plays a far more significant role in the well-being of children residing in poor urban environments than has previously been recognized. Results of research indicate that children whose homes improved the most in terms of greenness following relocation also tended to have the highest levels of cognitive functioning following the move.
