INFTA, its Associate Members and affiliated organizations are involved in a number of activities which aim at promoting the benefits of Forest Therapy. INFTA organizes several events each year to showcase what Forest Therapy is and what it can do for the health of individuals, health providers and the Public in general. All activities help to raise awareness about Forest Therapy, being in nature and living healthily. Our activities help getting Forest Therapy recognized as an international, easy-to-use and commercially highly viable Public health practice.
As proud recipient of the 2020-21 Healthy and Connected Communities Grant Program awarded by the Greater Geelong Council, INFTA will offer a range of Forest Therapy events to the Public, of course, free-of-charge for all participants. There will be Forest Therapy awareness workshops you can take part in or you sign up right away for one of the many Forest Therapy walks at the Geelong Botanic Gardens.
To create more Public awareness about the health benefits of Forest Therapy as a Public Health practice, INFTA will also provide podcasts for downloading. You will find more information about all events and how to sign up at our free registration page. Just click, sign up and enjoy your community Forest Therapy event in Greater Geelong.

A Public workshop on Forest Therapy was held at the Altona Library at Hobsons Bay, Victoria, on 15 August 2019. The event, presented by INFTA’s Secretary and International Strategic Advisor, Dr. Dieter Kotte, was titled “The Science Behind Forest Therapy“. Some 70 participants interested in the topics and eager to learn about the health benefits of Forest Therapy attended the workshop.
