Connecting Nature Summit Series | 1st edition
Connecting Nature Innovation Summit
As countries and cities adapt to living with Covid-19 and design and implement recovery strategies they have been presented with a unique opportunity: an opportunity to build back better and to use innovative tools such as nature-based solutions to do so. Building a strong city ecosystem using nature-based solutions that support society, nature and economic growth is key but will also be challenging.
The first Connecting Nature Summit will explore the challenges and opportunities and present innovations emerging to support the design, implementation and stewardship of nature-based solutions in cities. Summit content is being designed around the following themes: Healing sick cities, reducing the risks, from recession to recovery. A wide range of innovators including community led initiatives, city led innovations, nature-based enterprises, other H2020 funded projects and international experts will present their views.
The Connecting Nature Innovation Summit is co-hosted by Glasgow City Council and greenspace Scotland and supported by Climate Alliance. The summit will take place virtually, but participants can still experience a bit of Glasgow’s culture, the host city of the UN COP26 in Nov 2021, by discovering the city virtually. The multi-day event is the first edition of the Connecting Nature Summit Series.
The full program will be released in early 2021.
