Brasília to host EU-Brazil seminar on nature-based solutions

From 9-10 July, Brasília (Brazil) will play host to an international seminar on Nature-based Solutions (NBS), which is taking place as part of the EU-Brazil Sector Dialogue on Nature-based solutions.

The event, which is co-organised by the ICLEI European Secretariat, ICLEI South America Secretariat, the Connecting Nature project and the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation, will bring together European and Brazilian stakeholders from different urban sectors to discuss, share experiences and learn from one another on how to better plan NBS for sustainable urban change.

During the seminar, the Connecting Nature project, which seeks to explore the potential of innovative NBS to promote urban resilience through implementing nature interventions in European cities, will launch an Academy for Nature-based solutions.

The Academy will offer Brazilian cities a platform to express their needs, share their experiences and learn with European cities on how to better plan and implement nature-based interventions to create new jobs, foster economic growth and strengthen the resilience of cities.

The seminar will take place from 09:00-19:00 (Brazilian Time) at Museu da Republica, Brasília. For the latest copy of the programme, click here.
