There is a growing interest in utilizing nature-based methods in health care. The project aims to increase and diversify the use of natural and cultural heritage in a sustainable way.

There is a growing interest in utilizing nature-based methods in health care. The Corona pandemic 2020 has particularly clearly shown that there is a growing number of people for whom contact with nature and natural landscapes are limited.

At the same time, many sensitive natural areas have suffered from overuse, unsustainable utilization, littering and degradation of the natural environment itself. This project aims to increase and diversify the use of natural and cultural heritage in a sustainable way by developing VR solutions for social and health care services.
