All of the participants had a very positive impression in terms of the activity but also thanks to it the team finally had an opportunity to spend some time together.

As one more result the interview with the therapist was arranged: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlB5Fi5Ihek&t=2s

As an extra addition the team developed 2 quizzes:

  • Less waste quiz https://www.urbancreatives.org/kopia-quiz
  • Climate change quiz https://www.urbancreatives.org/climate-change-quiz

We decided to do that because some of the team members felt the urge to add some creative, gamifying elements to the website.


A forest bath is simply being mindful in nature, connecting with the forest through our senses. By opening our senses, we can connect the gap between us and the natural world. Creating a strong sensory connection with the forest that brings us into the present moment to release stress and relax us.

Nature is here to support us, all we need to do is slow down and listen.

A two-hour forest bath will help you to unplug from technology and slow down. It will bring you into the present moment and de-stress and relax you.

Workshop participants often share that their stress dissolves, confusion lifts, hearts open, emotions surface, ideas spring forth, and they take home a renewed sense of connection, meaning, and purpose.

Shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) was developed in the 1980s in Japan. Although people had been taking walks in the country’s forests for centuries, studies showed that forest immersion had a wide array of health benefit,including lowering the stress hormone cortisol, strengthening the immune system, and improving mood and cognition. As more research highlighted the benefits of shinrin-yoku, the Japanese government incorporated it into the country’s health programme.



The webinar is part of Urban creatives project on well-being, healthy nutrition, and minimal waste (http://urbancreatives.org), funded by DZS and Solidarity Corps (https://europa.eu/youth/solidarity_en)
