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

+8th June 2023 at the Flagey Building in Brussels, Belgium!

Through interviews, presentations, panel debates, and interactive sessions, it will be shown 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 of NbS and learn more about the products NetworkNature has to offer to policymakers, 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.

This NetworkNature Annual Event is open to the public and aims at reaching audiences that go also beyond the European NBS community. We warmly invite policymakers, scientific experts, civil society, investors and financing institutions, infrastructure planners and builders, landowners, and natural resource managers, as well as anybody who is involved or interested in NbS. If you or are new to the topic and joining from other sectors, such as climate, health, economy, and society, we look forward to welcoming you and hearing about your perspective.

The event will conclude with an evening reception open to all attendees.

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