Novel agenda-setting on nature-inspired therapies

This semester we organize a series of Science Cafés cooperating with Care farm blog, aiming to initiate discussions about those therapeutic approaches which integrate the power of nature.

In Western and Northern Europe green care is an emerging topic, in Hungary this concept is nearly unknown though some health and social care providers have already been offering this kind of services. They are going to be our guests at the Science Café events.
