A video was played while a den was created for the delegates in real-time. The den was constructed from audience suggestions to form a collective "Self-Care Share Den".
 
Participants were asked to share what types of spacial qualities and activities they felt would help them with their well-being.
Elements included duvets, cushions, nature, swimming in the sea, low lighting, reading, and puppies.
