In this paper we want to present five concepts for wellbeing related services and activities that have been piloted in the Western Uusimaa region as examples of ways of bringing health and wellbeing to different settings and different user groups. The pilots have been conducted for children in the kindergarten and secondary school, for adults in the health centre and for the unemployed in a variety of every day settings. We also want to present how local experiments can be put into wider use by virtual means and present the concept of the virtual wellbeing backpack family. The paper is based on work done in Laurea University of Applied Sciences (Laurea UAS) in a subproject of a cross regional project Pumppu funded by the European Regional Fund during 2011-2014.
