The aim of Blue Gym is to capture the evidence to enable us to understand the value of natural water environments in promoting human health and wellbeing and to:

  • Disseminate the findings of our research (and the work of the European Centre) to the public, businesses and health professionals in Cornwall and beyond.

  • Inspire debate and discussion with Cornwall and beyond about the way people feel about and use natural water environments, and the best ways to encourage different groups to enjoy natural water environments and improve health and wellbeing.

  • Develop relationships with businesses from Cornwall and beyond that may benefit from the findings of Blue Gym research.

  • Improve the quality of current and future research by understanding the research needs of businesses and other third sector organisations and ensuring that Blue Gym research is relevant.
