New Roots is a project in the ecovillage Hallingelille in Denmark. We invite traumatized refugees for rehabilitation through nature-based therapy and experiences of community. New Roots started in 2014, working with a nearby asylum center. Later it was part of a research project run from the University of Copenhagen, looking into nature-based therapy for refugees.
In our experience the combination of nature and a welcoming community has a great potential of stabilizing traumas, rebuilding personal resources and providing meaning, hope and dignity.
