NetworkNature project groups bring together case studies, resources and news in a convenient and accessible archive.

NetworkNature project groups and all of the content uploaded to them will be preserved in NetworkNature and Oppla long after projects have ended. The groups are open to any projects, networks or other programmes led by members of the nature-based solutions community.
