How to create new green areas and allow for the recovery of degraded ecosystems? How to cultivate shared places for dialogue and exchange between urban, peri-urban and rural populations and administrations? How to strengthen connectedness between people in urban settings – both to one another and to their natural environment?
This event will endeavor to answer these and more questions during plenary sessions and workshops on 21st September. On 22nd, you will be visiting three Nature-based Solutions within the Kraków Metropolitan Area, to give you the combined experience of your five senses! Furthermore, an assessment tool will be presented, which is currently under development within the INTERLACE project. The tool will be able to support the process of designing, implementing and monitoring restorative Nature-based Solutions.
The conference is part of the CITIES TALK NATURE programme embedded in the INTERLACE project. INTERLACE aims to empower and equip European and Latin American cities to effectively restore and rehabilitate (peri)urban ecosystems towards more liveable, resilient and inclusive cities. CITIES TALK NATURE represents a community of practice, to 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.
