Urbanisation from the developing world has been phenomenal and renewed the interest of studying the connection between urban greenness and subjective wellbeing. This paper responds to this greenness-wellbeing connection by shifting its focus towards systematically exploring the influences of urban greenness, perceived pollution hazards, and their interaction terms on subjective wellbeing. Using a combination of green view data and individual survey data in Beijing, we find that perceived pollution hazards about the disposal of waste, polluted water, and air pollution have significant interaction effects with eye-sensored greenness exposures on subjective wellbeing. Findings of this study suggest that policies geared towards mitigating particular domains of pollution hazards and improving green landscape should work together for shaping people’s quality of life.
