Nature-based Solutions in a Changing Climate 2022

We are bringing together leading researchers from the social and natural sciences, engineering and economics with policymakers, civil society actors and business leaders to discuss the potential of Nature-based Solutions (NbS) to meet societal goals in a warming world. We will draw together the current state of the interdisciplinary evidence for the socioeconomic and ecological effectiveness of NbS, and explore the social, technical, ethical, ecological, governance and financial challenges around scaling them up. As well as highlighting avenues for further research, we will aim to generate guidelines on the design and implementation of NbS targeting decision-makers in business and government. Outcomes will be synthesised in policy briefs, a special issue, and made available to a wide audience through a creative outreach campaign. “Nature-based Solutions can help address the causes and consequences climate change at relatively low-cost, while delivering multiple benefits for people and nature”. The 2020 NBS conference is organized and hosted by the Nature-based Solutions Initiative, an interdisciplinary program of research, policy advice and education based at the University of Oxford. Its mission is to enhance understanding of the potential of Nature-based Solutions to address global challenges and increase their sustainable implementation worldwide. For more info visit THIS LINK

PEOPLE AND PLANET - FROM THEORY TO SOLUTIONS

Science and practice for human and planetary health meet at the 2021 European Green Capital, Lahti, Finland.

This Conference will bring together researchers, decision makers and stakeholders from the environmental, health and other sectors. Appropriately, it will take place in Lahti, the European Green Capital for 2021. It follows on from The Helsinki Planetary Health Conference in 2019 and will continue in the spirit of the Helsinki Declaration in emphasizing the urgency for action (links below).

The Conference will focus on how human health and the health of the planet are closely connected and what can be done to protect and enhance both. There can be no doubt that decisions and actions are needed: Climate change, biodiversity loss and most recently the Covid-19 pandemic are profoundly changing the planet and the way people live on it.

Pragmatic solutions to prevent, or more often mitigate, the effects on planetary health are essential. Sustainable food production, water management, urban planning, understanding the health benefits of nature and informed citizens are all fundamental in moving pertinent agendas forward.

With these global chal­lenges firmly in mind, the aims of this conference are:
1. To discuss the scientific challenges of transdisciplinary research in environmental and medical sciences.

2. To present solutions supporting public health and respecting planetary boundaries

City of Palermo Training Event

The first euPOLIS communication, dissemination and training event of focus groups for the city of Palermo will be held online on 119.07. 2021 on the Google Meet platform (in Italian language only), from 10.00 to 12.30. The Villa Turrisi in Palermo is a case study area of the euPOLIS project.It is located in the western part of the city of Palermo, in a plain once named “Conca D’oro” (gold basin), named after the fruit’s colour, due to the large number of citrus trees present here. Today, most of the agricultural lands surrounding the old city have been built up. The building surrounding the area covered by this study is mainly residential and is characterized by poor architectural quality. The building expansion of the 1960s, in addition to sacrificing the greenery, also razed a large part of the ancient agricultural estates, from the 18th and 19th centuries, owned by the nobles and their beautiful manor houses.

3rd World Conference of the Society for Urban Ecology

The conference invites scientists, practitioners, and policy-makers interested in relations between socioeconomic and ecological components of urban systems to attend The 3rd World Conference of the Society for Urban Ecology 2020/21. As you probably noticed the Conference has to be moved by one year because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, but we are convinced, it will be an exciting event. After the successful previous conferences in Berlin (2013) and in Shanghai (2016), we will meet on 7 to 9 July 2021 in Poznań, a green and health-oriented city, with one of Poland’s highest quality of life indexes. The conference program covers a wide range of topics related to urban ecological aspects and social components interdependencies in cities. The leading concept of the SURE2020/21 conference in Poznań is to provide a welcoming forum for scholars, experts, and business and administration professionals to present their research and discuss the ideas, concepts, experiences, and different points of view.
