NetworkNature Annual Event: Enabling transformation through and for nature-based solutions

June 8, 2023 | Events

As NetworkNature comes to an end and prepares the ground for the next chapter, NetworkNaturePlus, the Nature-based Solutions (NbS) community comes together once again to discuss the transformative nature of NbS. 

📅8 June 2023, 9:00 – 20:00
📍
Brussels, Belgium

Through interviews, presentations, panel debates and interactive sessions, we will see how NbS benefits reach across sectors and communities with their transformative potential. We will also discuss which transformations are needed in policy, in the economic and financing sector, and in science and practice to mainstream NbS. You will get to know the creative side to NbS and learn more about the products NetworkNature has to offer to policy makers, practitioners and businesses to see more NbS on the ground. You will find out about different EU-funded NbS projects and have time to network.

Prior to the event (on 7th June afternoon) and after the event (on 9th June morning), attendees are invited to participate in site visits to nature-based solutions in Brussels and Antwerp (sites to be determined).
