European survey on the markets of Forest-Based Care and Green Care Tourism

Our project aims at increasing Europe’s innovation capacity to promote green and natural approaches to health and social care. If you are involved in a forest-based care or green care tourism initiative, then take the survey to help understand the green care market.


We recently launched an open survey for two of our thematic sectors: forest-based care and green care tourism.

The scope of forest-based care ranges from promoting health issues and improving general wellbeing to addressing mental and physical issues. Depending on the target group, forest-based care initiatives work interdisciplinary, for example in the fields of forestry, education, social inclusion and tourism. Green care tourism is defined as a wide range of organised tourism experiences and products that rely on nature and natural resources and represent a new travel motivation for tourists in search of health, well-being and regeneration.

The forest-based care survey aims to better understand the forest-based care initiatives, such as their customer base. By completing this questionnaire, participants will help our team develop a market outlook on forest-based care.

The green care tourism survey aims to better understand the initiatives that provide tourism experiences and products that support tourists in search of health and well-being by contact with nature and natural resources. Our research team aims to understand factors like the initiatives´ customer base, needs and market for the creation of a market outlook on green care tourism.

Both surveys are available in multiple languages and take 5-10 minutes to complete. The surveys are voluntary and anonymous and the data will be analysed in an aggregated way; you can help us by filling in the questionnaires by 07/06/2021.
