Biophelia Financial Analyst Cost Benefits

Globally more deaths per year are linked to urban air pollution than to automobile accidents. But increasing plants in cities can be a major countervailing force.

Biophelia was defined by E.O. Wilson as ""the rich, natural pleasure that comes from being surrounded by living organisms." Over the years, evidence has mounted of the mental and physical health benefits plants can provide to humans.

If the density of plants per acre in a neighborhood or city reaches botanical garden density (that is, comparable to the level of plants per acre of the Forest City in southern China, the neighborhood of the Bosco Verticale in Milan, or the neighborhood around largest vertical garden in the world in Bogota, Columbia), the number of deaths in cities from air pollution can be nearly eliminated and cities can become more livable places.

How can we bring this reality closer in cities around the world?

CrowdDoing 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.

Plant proximity has been shown to be beneficial in multiple ways including from air pollution reduction & stress reduction. These leverage points have been demonstrated to have positive medical consequences in terms of reduced opioid addiction, reduced medical mistakes, prevention of diseases & conditions such as hypertension & related complications, asthma, heart attacks, strokes, cancer, diabetes, alzheimers & dementia, schizophrenia, rheumatoid arthritisacute pancreatits, chronic kidney disease. We have also evaluated the consequences of proximity to plants on hospital staff presenteeism, absenteeism & turnover rates.

We have concluded that under any scenario we have tested, a network of plant walls & vertical gardens and other uses of plants could pay for themselves in as little as two years and provide beneficial outcomes for more than 20 years. Plant proximity is understood by the scientific community through the lens of "biophelia". Biophelia is the visual & sensory experience of plants and proximity to plants. You have expertise relevant to reviewing for validity and applicability our simulation of biophelia in hospitals. Our draft aims to forecast the social outcomes that could be caused by varying scenarios of biophelia in hospitals. We have identified more than 100 outcomes that in principle can be attributed to biophelia. We present here in draft for review a partial simulation of this impact potential. We have aimed to consider prospective benefits to all stakeholders. We have structured this to be a flexible model that can be adapted to any hospital circumstance. We’ve aimed to identify both health outcomes, environmental outcomes financial outcomes.
