Natureach Workshop 1 - Virtual nature interventions

Last changed: 27 April 2023
Kickoff in dome

The workshop gathered experts in social and health care, VR- and digital technology and multidisciplinary research to discuss virtual nature interventions from client perspective. We also had a VR session at Curiosum dome theatre and a great opportunity to test different VR-equipment, which gave us important information for the equipment selection for different client groups in the project.
