VARCITIES at Network Nature Annual Event in Brussels

June 2023

On June 7th and 8th 2023, we were in Brussels for NetworkNature EU Annual Event, as part of the EU Green Week 2023!

Dedicated to the transformative potential of Nature-based Solutions (NbS), the event marked the end of the Coordination and Support Action (CSA) NetworkNature which supported the clustering of EU-funded projects on NbS, and paved the way for NetworkNaturePlus. The two days were filled with insightful discussions, interactive sessions, and networking opportunities.

The NetworkNature Annual Event welcomed a diverse audience that extends beyond the European NbS community. Policymakers, scientific experts, civil society representatives, investors, financing institutions, infrastructure planners, landowners, natural resource managers, and individuals from various sectors were invited to share their perspectives and contribute to the discussions

Particularly, discussions on how NbS transcend sectors and communities and can bring about positive transformations echoed what VARCITIES and its pilot are implementing with the Visionary Solutions! The event also explore the necessary policy changes, economic and financing sector shifts, and scientific advancements required to mainstream NbS.

We were particularly happy to be part of the Nature-based Solutions Marketplace where we were able to showcase project and present the Joint Manifesto we have developped together with our Sister Projects.

Representing us and our sister projects, euPOLISGoGreen Routes, Professor Marìa del Mar Delgado, IN-HABIT Project Coordinator presented our Joint Manifesto calling on European cities to launch initiatives that offer visionary and integrated solutions to increase the health and well-being of citizens!
