SUPERFREDAG: “THE BENEFITS OF OUTDOOR OFFICE WORK”
2019-08-23 @ 16:00 - 17:00
Are you in the habit of working outdoors from time to time? Have you even tried it? While some of us do take a “walk n’ talk” or a seat at the nearest piazza when the opportunity occurs during the workday, most of us spend long hours indoors in office buildings. How well-advised is that, really?
The body of scientific results linking contact with nature to human health and wellbeing is huge. Among other things, the research concludes that outdoor environments can enhance learning, boost creativity, create positive relations and make for more environmentally sustainable behaviors.
This first Superfredag after the summer vacation is hosted by our friends from StickUt Malmö. Join them for a presentation of the very first results from an interactive research project they do in collaboration with Malmö University and The City of Malmö, where they explore how the concept of “outdoor office work” can contribute to a more sustainable and innovative working life.
