UrbanByNature The Global Programme for Urban Nature Pioneers delivered its next webinar in September 2020.

"What are your city's needs and experiences on Nature-Based Solution?"

Date:     4th September 2020

Time:     2-3 PM (CET)

In this webinar, we proceeded to STEP2/EXPLORE of UrbanbyNature program. In the webinar the
participants were introduced to NBS in Connecting Nature cities, as well as NBS cases
of Poznan (Poland) and Yerevan (Armenia). The experts and cities worked on nature-
based solutions, shared how they have identified their city’s needs and experiences in this
field. This allowed them to better understand their starting point for planning and
implementing nature-based interventions. The speakers outlined how to define potentials
for ensuring that solutions result in city-wide benefits. During the webinar, participants
had an opportunity to share their experiences and time to explore common questions.

Speakers for this webinar were:

  • Stuart Connop, Senior Research Fellow, Sustainability Research Institute (SRI), University of East London (UEL), London, UK
  • Agnieszka Osipiuk, Project Coordination and Urban Regeneration Office of the City of Poznań, Poznan, Poland
