The Project will be implemented through 7 different work packages described below.
WP1 Communication (Luke)
WP1 consists of both external and internal communication as well as networking in the form of workshops and study visits.Communication is the cornerstone of transnational learning, the goal of learning from each other, in the Project.
WP2 Project Management (Luke)
WP’s task is to ensure that the project achieves its goals within the stipulated time, and that all agreements and agreements between partners are in good condition.
WP3 Creation of Virtual Platform (SLU)
WP3 brings together research, companies, organizations and stakeholders of nature and health in a virtual network – a hub – where entrepreneurs, academics and recipients jointly develop and determine the content during the course of the project.
WP4 Creation of new tools for entrepreneurs (County Administrative Board in Västerbotten)
In this WP, a map will be produced, through which you can find areas that support recovery and health, as well as an application through which natural experiences can be registered on the map.
WP5 Collecting and creating courses for entrepreneurs (Centria)
Existing education and research in nature and health will be brought together on the virtual hub and in this way it will be easier for the participants to get a comprehensive picture of what is offered and easier to take part in the offer. Based on the results of the project, a new course will also be tailor made for the target group.
WP6 Determining the health effects of nature (Umeå University)
WP6 focuses on developing measurement methods for recording physiological and mental health effects when staying in nature.These measurements are intended to be linked to an interactive map application (together with WP4) where both the user’s movements and experiences in nature can be recorded.
WP7 Guide for entrepreneurs (Centria)
The goal is that nature entrepreneurs not only use nature in their activities but protect and are ambassadors for ecological and socio-cultural sustainability. In this way, nature entrepreneurs actively take care of the natural and cultural heritage. Customers learn to take care of nature by taking part in health-promoting natural products. The natural entrepreneur takes into account in his products quality factors, ecological sustainability, social and cultural sustainability. Nature entrepreneurship becomes more sustainable and high-quality through an ethical approach in which the entrepreneur safeguards the health and well-being of himself, his employees and the company animal health, and takes into account the diversity perspective and non-discrimination in all activities.
