Effective factors of natural healing resources forest and water
Tourism runs through numerous areas of life, society, and the economy, especially in rural regions, making it one of the most significant cross-border driving forces for Bavaria and Austria. Spa towns and health resorts are central elements of tourism and have been catalysts for regional economic, social, and tourist development for centuries.
Sustainable value chains have emerged around natural resources, shaping both culture and economy to this day. Building upon this tradition and economic strength, the project investigates the natural healing resources of forests and water (abbreviated as WiWa2), exploring new evidence-based approaches to the impact of natural environments on the health and quality of life of the general population and specific patient populations.
