UrbanByNature special offer: Learning Co-Production of Naturebased Solutions with DRIFT

In times of rapid urbanisation, increasing population, resource depletion, degradation of ecosystems, growing pressures on urban land and a climate crisis, nature-based solutions (NBS) provide multiple opportunities for both society and nature. The UrbanByNature programme supports cities and practitioners in planning for and applying NBS that are cost-effective and mutually beneficial. Cities play a key role in fostering this transformative change towards more liveable, resilient and regenerative futures. Some cities have become pioneers in leading climate action and in implementing NBS in a participatory way. In this special edition course by UrbanByNature, the team of DRIFT - long standing experts on collaborative planning - a course on co-producing NBS in cities.

• Are you involved in implementing NBSs in cities (e.g. by setting up or running
community gardens, by working at a local authority, by facilitating multi-stakeholder
collaborations, by running a local association, NGO or business operating at city level,
by conducting action research in your city, etc.)?
• Are you interested in learning more on how to design a co-production process to
implement NBS in your city?
• Do you want to learn from peers experienced in designing co-production processes
and from pioneers in implementing NBS in cities?
If so, join us for this hands-on, intensive peer-learning course for elected officials, civil servants,
civil society and nature-based enterprises motivated to foster co-production processes
towards resilient and regenerative livelihoods. The limited course will run between
