Abstract

Rapid urbanization has brought changes in life events that impact the psychological problem of mental health. The urban nature serves as a Psychological Restoration (PR) among affected people. Besides, closed attachment with nature leads somebody to react as pro-environmental. Despite many studies on nature and PR, hardly any studied in neuro-landscape (NL) intervene with pro-environment behaviour (PEB) on PR. Thus, this paper explores the potential of PEB to integrate on PR via a systematic mapping review with 23 articles. Hence, these significant arguments were discussed in detail as a basis to support the future study proposition.

Keywords: Neuro-Landscape (NL), Pro-Environmental Behaviour (PEB), Psychological Restoration (PR), Urban Environment (UE)
