Our nature – providing thousands of opportunities!

Nordic Nature Health Hub is a virtual Nordic toolkit for nature entrepreneurs and nature travelers. Well-functioning tools and studied information on the well-being effects of nature, the preservation of nature and cultural values, and the nature business possibilities – all this in your pocket!

Our nature and well-being

The health and well-being effects of nature are unquestionable, and making better use of them can create new businesses in different areas. Entrepreneurs need our research and new tools, such as applications, courses and manuals to create and sustain sustainable and attractive nature, health and well-being businesses.

The values ​​of our nature

When utilizing our natural and cultural heritage, it is also important to raise awareness of how areas can be preserved and exploited with respect and sustainability. By supporting the know-how of entrepreneurs, we enhance respectful attitude to our unique natural and cultural heritage. We make the entrepreneurs cooperating with us ambassadors of ecological and socio-cultural sustainability.

Nordic Nature Health Hub is an EU-funded project that implements an information and toolkit for businesses and nature-loving individuals. Our goals are:

  • Nature entrepreneurs who use our tools use actively information about the well-being and health effects of nature in their marketing and create new, sustainable and competitive high quality products on the market.
  • The program area is an attractive destination for international travelers and will be known for its well-being and health-promoting nature, as well as high quality natural products and ethically responsible entrepreneurs.
