What are your city's needs and experiences with nature-based solutions?

UrbanByNature – The Global Programme for Urban Nature Pioneers

29 May 2019, 15:00 - 16:00

In this webinar – taking place at 15:00-16:00 CEST or 10:00-11:00 BRT – experts and cities working on nature-based solutions will share how they 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 will outline how they spotted barriers and opportunities, as well as potentials for ensuring that solutions result in city-wide benefits.

Speakers for this webinar are:

  • Dr. Stuart Connop, Senior Research Fellow - Sustainability Research Institute, University of East London (UK)
  • Stephan Kampelmann and Adrian Hill, OSMOS (Belgium)
  • Natalia Madajczyk, Head of Unit for Interdisciplinary Projects, City of Poznań (Poland); Agnieszka Dziubała, Connecting Nature Project Officer, City of Poznań; and Agnieszka Osipiuk, Chief Specialist for Interdisciplinary Projects, City of Poznań

The webinar will be moderated by Alice Reil and Daniela Rizzi (ICLEI Europe) and Sophia Picarelli (ICLEI South America).

In this webinar, participants will learn about:

  • the current status of urban nature-based solutions globally
  • the Connecting Nature project and the planning of nature-based solutions for city-wide benefits
  • the ambitions of leading cities in the project to plan for nature-based solutions
  • the benefits of having an institution, as well as Small- and Medium-Enterprises together developing processes for exploring city needs and experiences
  • Poznan’s experiences with nature-based solutions and lessons learnt along the way towards implementation

There will be time for questions as well.
