Espoo´s Small Scale Action – a Health Nature trail Design Guide has finally been published. The booklet acts as a guideline on cross-departmental participatory collaboration in planning a health nature trail. The Design Guide is based on good experiences in implementing a health nature trail at Espoo Central Park in 2019 in a close cooperation in between the City of Espoo, Olari residents´ association and nearly 20 other organisations. The booklet offers clear, step-by-step guidelines to both NGO´s and public organisations on planning, implementing, and maintaining a health nature trail.
