Digitalizing nature to increase resilience. Nature is beneficial to our health and creativity: it involves space and tranquility and also has a touch of mystery. People fulfilling creative tasks, do better in natural surroundings. Simulating nature during stressful situations in e.g. a hospital, will make patients feel more relaxed. Walking a virtual reality path in the woods during waiting or surgery, proves to be work very well. What if we use this for making our own students and employees more resilient and less susceptible to work stress? This is a project by the new Tech4People Lab.
