The project will create a digital collaboration platform, The Nordic Nature Health Hub, which enables cross-sectorial and interdisciplinary information exchange and continuous learning between countries. Hub provides a database and open collaboration forum to provide information on education and current research results in an easy-to-use format.
The Hub also includes a map-based spatial information service and a digital application that conveys information about nature areas and features that are applicable to service activities. Hub will serve as a joint Nordic data bank containing information on both the concepts of nature-based services and their impact on health and well-being. The Hub aims to increase the overall sustainable use of natural and cultural heritage in business.
