Network Healing Greenery (2020- )
Coordinating institution: Kaunas University of Applied Sciences (Lithuania). Partners: Savonia University of Applied Sciences  (Finland), Estonian University of Life Sciences (Estonia), The Institute of Service Economy of TTK University of Applied Sciences (Estonia).
Partnership came to agreement that green care concept should be explored more and introduced into learning process at our institutions as one of innovative and attractive approaches. Green care is the use of agricultural farms and the biotic and abiotic elements of nature for health and therapy-promoting interventions as a base for promoting human mental and physical health, as well as quality of life. Overall aim of the network is to educate flexible and open minded specialist who may be involved in development, promotion and use of green care concept. The network is dedicated amendments of developed study module, integration into existing educational structures at partner institutions and for the development of further aims of the network. We are planning to have Intensive course and mobility during third year too as mobility within network is seen as mean to assure internationalization of institutions and to widen competence of participants.
