Seedbed Intervention: Lahti
The City of Lahti’s seedbed intervention took place at the Lahti health forest (pilot area).There are discussions on connecting the pilot area with the nearby Likolampi route to increase the positive impacts on health and wellbeing. The nature reserve of Kintterö is located on the western side of the city of Lahti right next to the Päijät-Häme Central Hospital. Therefore, easy accessibility for the hospital staff and patients is important. This area is going to be transformed with NBS interventions in 2023. Staff members of the Joint Authority of Health and Wellbeing (PHHYKY) volunteered for the Seedbed intervention in the Lahti health forest. The intervention consisted of guided sensory walks over the period where each day five staff members participated. Before, as well as after the intervention, the volunteers were asked to answer a short survey about their feelings and experiences in the health forest.
