Abstract [en]

Mental illness linked to stress and mental fatigue is increasingly common and some say that urban life is the cause. Science shows that experiences in nature may have a restorative affect on human well-being. The study emphasizes the importance of considering mental health in urban planning by including a restorative perspective. It examines the relationship between humans and their natural environment in the urban planning of Rosendal in Uppsala. Using document analysis, the study analyzes how restorative environments are represented in planning documents for Rosendal and identifies values related to natural environments. An observation of Solvallsparken based on eight restorative characteristics provides further understanding of how natural environments can be used as a restorative environment. The result shows that several different concepts are used to describe restorative environments which can be summarized as recreation, ecosystem services, and public environments. In essence, natural environments are linked to values concerning social gathering, biodiversity, attractiveness and in some cases, natural environments are given lower priority. Above all, the nearby forests adjacent to Rosendal can be used as restorative environments. Solvallsparken as a restorative environment is limited.
