Optional Fields
One aspect that has been overlooked in the study of human-nature interactions is the voice of the participants in green exercise. In this chapter we strive to bridge this gap by exploring the lived experiences of six athletes in relation to the complex interplay between their sport practice and nature. Using a mixed-methods approach, we examined the athletes’ well-being, connectedness to nature, and environmental concerns through a set of standardised instruments, and subsequently, summarised central themes that emerged from interviews.
