Videos Nature-Based Solutions for Greener Cities

We recommend you three video presentations on Nature-Based Solutions which had been realized during the  “Nature-Based Solutions for Greener Cities” free webinar organized by our partners Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP) on 31 October 2017.

The experts present explored to what extent and with what methods, cities are currently adopting Nature-Based Solutions, as a fix to their challenges. For this, they discussed policy frameworks, innovations, and citizen engagement methods and presented some of the most promising NBS projects.

This webinar took place before the ” GGKP Annual Conference, which focuses on sustainable infrastructure and includes a dedicated session on Co-design, co-development, and co-implementation of Nature-Based Solutions for urban resilience.” (

All the three presentations are recorded in a single video.
