Enabling Nature-based Health and Social Care through Knowledge Alliances

About this event

A unique opportunity to discover the market and policy trends, and what they look like on the ground, for Europe's fastest-growing themes that bridge the health and environment sectors; Nature-based Health and Social Care.

This webinar will bring together some of the most important researchers and practitioners to discuss challenges and concrete steps forward for the development and implementation of Green Care initiatives and nature-based interventions. Outcomes of discussions in the webinar will result in the design of a policy and market brief on Green Care.
