Biophilia – CrowdDoing Initiative
Biophelia is the visual & sensory experience of plants and proximity to plants. Studies have shown that proximity to plants reduces air pollution and stress, improving physical and mental health.
CrowdDoing’s Biophelia team has simulated health and economic gains from increased plant density through vertical gardens in hospitals and libraries. These can be extended and deepened through further outcome simulation, contextual modeling and visual illustration carried out by a diverse range of volunteers, potentially including city planners, biologists, and hospital/medical system experts.h
