Nature-based solutions are practical actions to protect, conserve, restore, sustainably use and manage natural or modified terrestrial, freshwater, coastal and marine ecosystems which address social, economic and environmental challenges effectively and adaptively, while simultaneously providing human well-being, ecosystem services, resilience and biodiversity benefits. While considerable effort has been invested in the researching, understanding, building knowledge and communicating about these solutions, there remains a prevailing belief that NbS are best understood through a first-hand experience or visit. For this reason, NetworkNature aims to capitalise on the existing network of national and regional NbS Hubs to enable a “Live tour of Nature-based Solutions around Europe”. The goal of this tour is to gather insights, learnings, provoke questions, and share experiences.

The session will focus on experiences from local NbS sites, engage in discussions with various stakeholders, and explore the topics discussed through interactive exchanges and posters exhibition.

Representatives of 10 NbS hubs will showcase their experiences through the local NbS sites visited: Nordic Hub, Italian Hub, Spanish Hub, Portuguese Hub, Caucasus Hub, Ukrainian Hub, Scottish Hub, Polish Hub, Hungarian Hub, Southeastern Europe Hub
