Results from the study ‘nature’s significance for human well-being’,
shows that “The Rug of Life” gives additional value to the narratives.
The method is qualitative with in-depth interviews combined with visual
methodology of sixteen respondents between ages 25–76, who are living
close to nature. In the interview it was asked what kind of nature has a
meaning for them and how they estimate their well-being and nature’s
impact on it and how quality of life are experienced, as well as
nature’s and the local rural environment’s significance as a health
promoting factor. The study has a salutogenic approach.
