What’s on for next week?


Next week, we’ll dive deeper into the key elements of design to help us answer the big question: ‘‘How can nature help us overcome the challenges facing cities?’

This week we focused on the reasons for and benefits of bringing nature into cities and we defined and explored the range of nature based solutions available to us.

In Week 2, we’ll delve into the practicalities of implementing nature-based solutions in cities: choosing the right approaches, using tools such as ‘biodiversity sensitive urban design,’ overcoming barriers and engaging the public.
