The unconventional conference offered workshop and presentations in four distinctive themes: Service Design; Caring and Touch – Human Body in Health and Wellness; Integrating Education and RDI for Empowered Wellness and Life-Style; Movement and Arts in Services and Care. The students were behind all event logistics and event design. They also prepared additional unexpected encounters for participants like wellness lounge with massages and simple spa treatments or flash mob during a coffee break.
