The Green4C project aims at increasing Europe’s innovation capacity to promote green and natural approaches to health and social care. The project recently launched an open survey for two of our thematic sectors: forest-based care and green care tourism.

The scope of forest-based care ranges from promoting health issues and improving general wellbeing to addressing mental and physical issues. Depending on the target group, forest-based care initiatives work interdisciplinary, for example in the fields of forestry, education, social inclusion and tourism.

Green care tourism is defined as a wide range of organised tourism experiences and products that rely on nature and natural resources and represent a new travel motivation for tourists in search of health, well-being and regeneration. The forest-based care survey aims to better understand the forest-based care initiatives, such as their customer base. By completing this questionnaire, participants will help Green4C team develop a market outlook on forest-based care. The green care tourism survey aims to better understand the initiatives that provide tourism experiences and products that support tourists in search of health and well-being by contact with nature and natural resources.

The Green4C research team aims to understand factors like the initiatives' customer base, needs and market for the creation of a market outlook on green care tourism. Both surveys are available in multiple languages and take 5-10 minutes to complete. The surveys are voluntary and anonymous and the data will be analysed in an aggregated way; you can help us by filling in the questionnaires by 19 May 2021.
