COST Action - Green Care
Working Group 3 - Policies related to green care
Bjarne Olai Braastad
The main aim of this Working Group is to investigate how green care fits into current and future national health and social care systems. This includes the organisation of the green care system and the building up of the network behind the health and social care systems. A further aim is to define how rural development is affected; creation of new jobs and strengthening of the economic viability of rural communities, those of less-favoured and remote rural areas in particular.
