Research on the use of eco-therapy

The consortium is currently conducting research activities in each partner country. The aim is to explore the extent to which eco-therapy is part of the training programmes for trainers and educators. Each partner will collect existing initiatives and training programmes and review and identify elements related to eco-therapy in national VET curricula and non-formal programmes aimed at trainers who want to include eco-therapy in their offer  and collect these.
We will also look at the legal aspect and see if there is any legislation or guidelines related to eco-therapy in VET/CVET or non-formal provision.

Besides desk research we will conduct expert interviews with representatives of VET institutions and VET trainers, drug and alcohol abuse counsellors as well as representatives of therapy centres.

If you would like to support us in our research and are available for an interview, please contact one of the partners.
