The Mindfulness-in-Nature Based Training through Virtual ENvironments (MINDLIVEN) project aims to provide an innovative solution for effective coping and stress reduction at work environment.

Stress at work it’s more than a trend. The stress costs at work environment in European countries has been highlighted by several institutions and researchers. Among the stress costs, we can find productivity related losses, as well as health care and medical costs. European countries have directives and laws about stress assessment and consider stress prevention as a duty of organisations. But, it is also a matter of ethics: “do no harm” to others. In the workplace, this means ensuring employees’ health and prevent stress at work, which represents several benefits for companies.

Building on existing research, project’s consrtium have identified a set of needs in terms of preventing and addressing work place stress, leading to the development of a set of MiNBP contents supported by an online MiNBP platform with training that aim to develop competences to cope with stress and practice mindfulness, using the latest techniques in gamification, complemented by a set of practical tools and resources to facilitate the transfer of learning into the workplace.
