Co-producing nature-based solutions

15 Dec, 2021 - 02 Mar, 2022

In this special edition course by UrbanByNature, Marieke Verhagen and Giorgia Silvestri teach co-producing nature-based solutions in cities.
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, but others still need to accelerate.

“Very excited to interact with this international group of colleagues during the next months of my PhD, and plan nature-based solution co-production activities.” — Alexandra Tsatsou, Researcher & PhD candidate

This peer-to-peer online course provides tips, tricks and tools for local governments and active citizens to design co-production processes for resilient and regenerative cities and communities.
