In recent years, urban people tend to decongest large urban centers in need of getting closer to nature. The routine, the obligations and the lack of time result in us not being close to the environment anymore but the desire for an excursion or a visit to a forest or to a river always exists. Research shows that people living in densely populated areas face increased poverty and crime and are prone to a variety of psychological conditions, as opposed to those living in areas with lush vegetation who face a very small percentage of the above disadvantages.
