Programme Steps

Our curriculum reflects a co-creative approach, in which not only principles and methods are shared, but participants work together to actively engage in making cities and towns more resilient towards water and climate change challenges and in transforming their neighbourhoods.


The programme is powered by ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability with contributions by more than 30 partners (cities, researchers, practitioners and experts) from Connecting Nature and hosted by CitiesWithNature. The project’s 11 cities will share their expertise in planning for and using urban nature’s potential and are keen to exchange with other global cities.


Over a period of 24 months, you will be guided through our programme in seven steps, listening into thematic modules that cover a range of aspects relevant for planning and realising green and blue cities. Face-to-face events in each region are planned to take place once or twice during this period.
