Healthy ecosystems are the foundation of a sustainable economy and the well-being of society and business. This event aims to highlight opportunities for innovating with nature, using cost-effective and flexible solutions and for developing new partnerships for action in Europe.

The event expects to bring together a diverse audience, including representatives from EU institutions, governments, NGOs, civil society, the scientific community and the business sector, taking part in this exchange on how nature-based solutions can make Europe a safe, diverse, resilient and healthy place that thrives.
