Nature-based integration

Nordic experiences and examples

image of Nature-based integration

Increased attention to, and careful planning of the integration of migrants into Nordic societies is ever more important. Nature based integration is a new solution to respond to this need. This report presents the results of a Nordic survey and workshop and illustrates current practices of nature based integration by case study descriptions from Denmark, Sweden Norway and Finland. Across Nordic countries several practical projects and initiatives have been launched to promote the benefits of nature in integration and there is also growing academic interest in the topic. Nordic countries have the potential of becoming real forerunners in nature based integration even at the global scale.



Workshop results

One of the main tasks of the ORIGIN project was to organise a joint Nordic workshop to bring together the project partners and key actors from the countries participating in the project. The workshop took place in Helsinki 5th October 2016 at the Finnish Environment Institute. Since the topic of the project had raised a lot of attention and the launch of the survey had resulted in many queries from different actors, the workshop was kept open to the public. However, the number of attendees was limited in order to keep the workshop relatively small and relaxed as well as allow better opportunities for discussion and networking. A separate closed session at the end of the workshop was reserved for a project meeting.
