Spreading the word on the health benefits of wild swimming

A new project to encourage more people to reap the health benefits of 'wild swimming' has been launched by a group of researchers at the University of Nottingham. The project will be led by Professor Svenja Adolphs of the School of English. The research team at Nottingham consists of linguistics and placed-based literature experts, with health policy and freshwater ecosystem specialists. They will work with a long list of partners including Cardiff University, Swim England and the Black Swimming Association, to pull together a comprehensive overview and toolkit on the mental and physical health benefits of wild swimming as well as guidance on the risks related to water quality and safety of specific swimming spots in the UK.
