Cascais, Portugal (Nova School of Business and Economics, Room E0008)

How to unlock the nature-positive economy: restore ecosystems with nature-based solutions, shift from exploitation to preservation, recognize the links between ecosystems, economies, and well-being for sustainability?

The advantages of not only recognizing nature as value in our economic and social systems but also drawing inspiration from its innovative solutions for innovation are endless. Investing in nature at all strategic levels, including planning, funding, research and incentives can accelerate the impact of private investments on sustainable development. 

Join this in-person workshop organized by the EU projects Invest4Nature and NATURANCE in the context of the European Urban Resilience Forum to learn more about how cities and regions can prioritize a nature-positive economy through innovative financing. This will be followed by smaller roundtable discussions with participants on how to navigate the nature-positive landscape in your city or region. 

Moderator:  Siobhan McQuaid-Cullen (Horizon Nua & Trinity College Dublin)

Speakers: João Dinis (Cascais Ambiente), Lene Vinther Larsen (City of Aarhus), Michael Kernitzkyi (Joanneum Research Institute), and Daniela Rizzi (ICLEI Europe)
