Reimagining Urban Spaces

Nature-Based Solutions for Inclusive Transformations in Europe and Latin America

2-3 October 2024
Granollers, Spain

Nature-based solutions offer a powerful approach to help cities combat challenges such as urban sprawl, climate change, and pollution. By leveraging the regenerative power of nature, these solutions can restore degraded or damaged ecosystems, enhancing resilience against environmental threats and providing multiple benefits to society. Collaborative, action-driven research efforts involving policymakers, practitioners, and communities can facilitate the co-creation of knowledge, ensuring that solutions are grounded in local contexts and aligned with broader sustainability goals.

Organised by the EU-funded INTERLACE project on urban ecosystem restoration in Europe and Latin America, the event will foster dynamic discussions and share innovative practices from both regions. It will showcase learnings and resources around urban ecosystem restoration and nature-based solution planning and monitoring, inclusive stakeholder engagement and community participation, policy and governance, action-driven research, and cross-continental cooperation.

The conference will feature a mix of interactive sessions and hands-on workshops, inputs from experts and thought leaders in the field, and site visits to experience successfully implemented nature-based solutions. Simultaneous interpretation (English to Spanish) will be available throughout the conference.

Who Should Attend?

This event is tailored to all city makers - individuals passionate about creating greener, more inclusive urban environments! This includes representatives of local governments and NGOs, urban planners, researchers, and activists as well as policymakers, architects, institutional funders and representatives of EU institutions. Participation in the event is free of charge.
