20 May 2020
Priscila Jordão ICLEI
Coordinated by Trinity College Dublin, Connecting Nature is a consortium of 31 partners within 16 European countries, Brazil, China, Korea & The Caucasus (Georgia and Armenia). We are co-working with local authorities, communities, industry partners, NGOs and academics who are investing in a multi–million euro large scale implementation of nature–based projects in urban settings. We are measuring the impact of these initiatives on climate change adaptation, health and well-being, social cohesion and sustainable economic development in these cities. We are also developing a diversity of innovative actions to nurture the start-up and growth of commercial and social enterprises active in producing nature-based solutions and products.
Update: COVID-19. Following the restrictions related to the spread of Coronavirus, all our partners and teams are following a “remote working” procedure, mostly working from home. All face-to-face meetings have been postponed until after the restrictions have been lifted, and we may not be able to respond to enquiries as rapidly as we would like. We hope that all of our partners, their families and friends, and all urban communities will stay safe and well at this difficult time.
