International Workshop in Sweden 24.-26.8.2020


Due to the corona pandemic, the Piteå workshop cannot be held in August 2020.
We will postpone the workshop to another time.

After the summer holidays, we will inform everyone about the new time.

We invite entrepreneurs in the field of nature (Green Care, Grön Arena, NUR, nature tourism, etc.) as well as actors in the social, health and education sectors From Central Ostrobothnia, Northern Ostrobothnia and the Lapland region, as well as from Norrbotten and Västerbotten in Sweden.

The 2020 International workshop will be held in beautiful Piteå, Sweden. The workshop will be held at KUST Hotell and the visits will take place in nature-based companies in northern Sweden.

The trip offers an opportunity to network, exchange experiences and develop your own activities. We also visit various nature service companies. During the trip, participants also have the opportunity to present their own activities.
