How can virtual nature be a means for health promotion?


VR is becoming a mainstream technology –some believes that VR’ impact on future society will be comparable to the impact that smartphones had in the past decade. This means that virtual nature could be broadly available to most people in the future, so that virtual nature will be easily at hand. We don’t need to think we have to “go back” to nature, we can find new ways to get there. Technology will not necessarily take us away from nature, but it can rather be part of the solution to reconnect people with her. Giovanna Calogiuri was born in Italy, and moved to Norway, after gaining her PhD in Physical Activity and Health from the University of Milan. In Norway she shifted the focus of her research on the synergic benefits of physical activity and contact with nature. Giovanna Calogiuri works at the University of South-Eastern Norway. She has worked on different studies on the health benefits of green exercise (any physical activity in presence of nature), and how nature can help people supporting an active lifestyle. She is part of the EU-funded project GoGreenRoutes, which focuses on nature-based solutions to enhance the physical and mental health of urban residents across Europe. Giovanna co-authored over 30 scientific publications on this topic. She has been studying the concept of virtual nature, investigating the extent to which this technology can be used to promote health and to reconnect people to nature experiences. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
