The digitization of both private and working life places great demands on us people. Many functions no longer work without digitalisation and many feel the need to constantly be accessible and accessible. At the same time, research shows that nature can have a healing and balancing effect. Come to Science House and take part in a discussion about connection and relaxation, and how you can find a working balance in an increasingly digitalized society.

From Luleå University of Technology, three researchers participate in different fields:

Mari Runardotter works as an senoir lecturer and researcher with assignments as education leader for the digital service development program. Her research focuses on the possibilities and consequences of digitalisation for individuals, organizations and society. Mari is interested in questions such as: how should we create digitally included villages where the residents have the same participation in the digital community as urban dwellers?

Päivi Juuso (district nurse) is senoir lecturer and researcher on health and digitalization issues. Päivi is the project leader in the Nordic NaBs project, which works with sustainable solutions where entrepreneurs in the natural resource industry can act as a resource in the region and where public activities can offer nature-supported rehabilitation to promote health and prevent ill-health. In other words: how can nature support our health?

Åsa Engström (intensive care nurse) is a professor, head of subject in nursing and a leader in the health field at Luleå University of Technology. Åsa is interested in questions about the possibilities and risks of digitalisation for our health, as well as the importance of nature for health and well-being. Åsa will lead the discussion on how we can achieve a balance between being relaxed and connected, and how nature can be a support for sustainable health.
