GREENING THE BLUES 

The „Greening the Blues” project, carried out by UNHCR and IB Polska Foundation aims to improve mental wellbeing and promote community building through nature-related activities. These activities target locals, refugees, persons with specific needs, and marginalized groups.

Spending time among plants and in the fresh air has a positive impact on well-being, helps us to better cope with stressful situations and boosts our resilience. The project aims to harness the properties of nature enriched with the benefits of community building, to support individuals and local communities to flourish. 

Create a garden with us

and let’s have a common piece of land in Krakow – we will co-create it, spend time in it and take part in free classes and workshops.

Greening the Blues will be multi-faceted combining community gardening, green workshops, knowledge exchange, social events, and city-wide garden competitions. 

With these actions, IB Polska Foundation and UNHCR seek to bring about positive changes in the lives of participants and the community, not only during the project but also long after its completion.
