Welcome to CITIES TALK NATURE!
CITIES TALK NATURE is a community of practice dedicated to restoring degraded ecosystems in municipalities in Latin America, Europe and other parts of the world. Together we explore the multiple advantages of restorative nature-based solutions, such as benefits for the environment, biodiversity, social cohesion and the local economy, thus building resilience in our towns and cities.
CITIES TALK NATURE is based on two pillars: A webinar series and Engagement Events which are hosted by INTERLACE municipalities.
With these activities, CITIES TALK NATURE fosters
- exchange on objectives, processes, practical examples, technologies, financing options and business models on how to restore degraded ecosystems;
- access to tools, methods and approaches that support the planning, implementation and management of restorative nature-based solutions;
- support for collective action towards more liveable, inclusive and sustainable cities and towns of all sizes and locations, connecting people, places and nature.
The next webinars will take place on 27 January 2021, 28 April 2022 and 28 July 2022.
Upcoming Webinar on the 27th January 2022:
“Flowing towards Knowledge – River Restoration and Revitalization in Latin American and European Cities”
