This interactive workshop will provide:
- An overview of the Norwegian concept of friluftsliv, or "open-air life," and the important role it plays in Norwegian culture.
- The psychological and health benefits of getting outside, connecting with nature, and practicing frilufstliv—especially in winter.
- Strategies for practicing frilufstliv wherever you live, including approaches to help you get outside comfortably in all weather, as the Norwegians do. Attendees will walk away with not only a better understanding of Norwegian culture, but with practical strategies they can use in their own lives; attendees will have the chance to not only listen, but participate and share in the chat and apply workshop insights to their own experiences.
