After a successful launch event during last year’s '4th High-Level International Forum on Sustainable Urban Development’ in Chengdu, we are happy to announce that The UrbanByNature programme will kick-start a six-part webinar series for China on 30 June 2021.
Tailored to the needs and interests of Chinese local governments and urban stakeholders, UbN China is providing capacity-building and good practice exchange on a variety of topics including stakeholder engagement, technical implementation and monitoring of nature-based solutions.
"The ancient Chinese theory that man is an integral part of nature holds more truth than ever amid a time when COVID-19 continues to surge across the world. As the share of the population residing in cities is increasing in all regions, there is an increasing need for urban decision-makers and citizens to adopt policies and practices to integrate nature into daily life; after all, nature may very well offer the key to address a myriad of challenges urbanization presents. The ICLEI East Asia Secretariat is excited to facilitate the knowledge and expertise exchange between China and Europe, through UrbanByNature, in mainstreaming nature-based solutions into urban development."
Shu Zhu, Regional Director at ICLEI East Asia
The stream for Korea will commencing soon.
