IFTD2018 6th-12th of August 2018, Karjalohja – Finland
We are pleased to invite you to the first International Forest Therapy Days held in southern Finland on 6th-12th of August 2018. This event brings together international forest therapy practitioners, scientists and anyone who wishes to apply the healing effects of nature in their work, to share knowledge, learn from each other and experience different forest therapy practices.
Nature´s established health effects are starting to become broadly recognized. Applying the healing effects of nature, and specifically those of the forests outside of a specific practice, e.g. in primary health care, is only starting. Simultaneously, the Forest Therapy community is growing and with it, a diversity of approaches, terms, and practices are surfacing. The International Forest Therapy Days aim to raise awareness of Forest Therapy as a growing field and help the field a substantial step forward by building bridges between practice and science.
