Welcome to Norway in June 2021

The Agder region has become a driving force behind Norwegian and Nordic outdoor therapy. Two of the key host committee members are Norway’s representatives to ATIC and have also been the initiators and leaders of the Nordic Outdoor Therapy Network (counting 442 members at time of writing). Our professional environments have been visited by the Norwegian Prime Minister and the Minister of Health, and our research groups are presently the most productive within adventure therapy in Northern Europe. Furthermore, Kristiansand Municipality, in cooperation with Sørlandet Hospital, has since 2017 hosted the annual Scandinavian Camp Conference in Kristiansand, where the theme is outdoor life and mental health.
