- Outline in English : The central question of this paper is, what the knowledge is on a possibly beneficial influence of nature on our health and well being has so far been obtained through scientific research. The link between nature and indicators for health and well being is reviewed and the connection between health and nature is investigated by looking at how nature influences actions or mechanisms which in turn influence health. Existing research already provides consistent clues for assuming a positive link between nature and health.
