The Interreg Aurora funded project NATUREACH Kick off workshop in sunny Umeå on 30th March gathered experts in social and health care, VR- and digital technology and multidisciplinary research to discuss how to design virtual nature interventions from a client perspective. The project arranged an inspiring VR-session at Curiosum dome theatre and a great opportunity to test different VR-equipment together with top-experts in the field, which gave important information for the equipment selection for different client groups in the project.
Can virtual nature convey a feeling of being in nature, even when being indoors? What kind of virtual nature environments could support health and well-being in hospital care or as a part of services for people with disabilities or the elderly?
The project partners sends warmest thanks to all participants, it’s great to continue the collaboration creating new digital nature-based service models for health and well-being. You can find more information about the workshop on this webpage.
