In this inaugural UbN China webinar, participants were introduced to nature-based solutions (NBS) and to how they are being implemented across cities in Europe. Participants learnt about the potential of NBS to contribute to urban regeneration efforts and climate resilience goals. In addition, good practice examples from Shanghai showcased the relevance of NBS for cities in China. During the webinar, participants also had the opportunity to share their experiences and to explore questions with the webinar speakers:
