  • Gillian Dick from Glasgow City Council, Scotland, will discuss with Paula Vandergert how they have overcome silos in the city to deliver NBS through their Open Space Strategy at both strategic and operational levels.
  • Paula Vandergert will present a new tool to help cities with silo-busting and align NBS with wider policies, locally, regionally and internationally.
