This webinar is co-organized by UNESCO, Fondazione ICONS, and the University of Minho, as part of the NBSINFRA International Summer School (3-10 June), a partner event of EU Green Week 2024.

Join our speakers in exploring the nexus between Nature-based Solutions (NBS), water resilience and urban environments. In the first segment, our speakers will delve into the theoretical foundations of NBS, emphasizing its crucial role in disaster risk reduction and bolstering urban resilience. Gain insights into the diverse policy landscapes surrounding NBS at various scales, alongside exploring its myriad applications across UNESCO and EU initiatives.

Transitioning from theory to actionable insights, the second part will spotlight NBS and water through the lens of science communication. Engage with our speakers as they unveil innovative strategies for effectively conveying complex scientific concepts.
