The case for more green spaces

Research conducted on the benefits of green spaces show that they can have a positive impact on stress-related disorders such as anxiety and depression, according to a report. Experts believe the reason for such a correlation is because living near green areas promotes a more active lifestyle, reducing stress through the release of endorphins. Green spaces also promotes greater social interaction, through shared activities and tasks such as walking the dog.

By 2030, 90 per cent of Singaporeans will live within a 10-minute walk of a park, and Singapore’s network of green corridors will be expanded from 310km to 400km.
