Description and Scope
As cities and regions across the globe are being pushed towards becoming “greener” and more sustainable, it became clearer that there isn’t one “fix-all” solution. Each city and locality has its own unique challenges which needs to be taken into account.
The project group Nature-Based Solutions for Urban Areas, composed of the EU-funded projects SATURN, Landscape Metropolis, and URBAN GreenUP, specifically addresses the topic of Nature-Based Solutions (NBS). NBS, implemented correctly, can offer cost-effective and locally-attuned answers to many of the environmental, social and economic challenges facing any city. In this webinar, we will hear from members of the project group on their results that can be used by both local governments and civil society organisations.
At the end of the webinar, all participants will receive a FREE GIFT sent via email.
Who should attend and why
- Policy makers and funding agencies, specifically local, city, or regional government officials that are interested in nature based solutions and how they can improve the sustainability of local communities or integrating NBS into city infrastructures planning.
- Civil society organisations, NGOs and local citizens that would like to lobby for more sustainable cities.
