Nature and Cities international workshop: Green infrastructure and nature-based solutions
On 16 November from 11:00 – 17:30 CET the Turkish Nature Conservation Center (DKM) and Eurosite organise an international workshop on green infrastructure and nature-based solutions as part of the final conference of the Nature and Cities project. You are very welcome to participate. To do so, please send an e-mail to Mrs. Kübra Ceviz Sanalan.
Specific objectives of the project Nature and Cities (awarded under Europe Aid funding for Supporting Civil Society Dialogue Between the EU and Turkey) are to enhance dialogue, know-how transfer and cooperation between civil society organisations of both Turkey and The Netherlands on environmental and sustainable development within the scope of EU acquisition and policies on environment. Additionally, it is the aim to promote nature-based solutions and green infrastructure in cities as an effective tool for awareness raising on environment. This is also of importance to the potential EU membership of Turkey. The project is led by the Turkish Nature Conservation Centre (DKM). To sum up, main goals, outcomes and results are:
- Improved knowledge of nature-based solutions and green infrastructure in Turkey through the experience of EU member states (The Netherlands)
- Enhanced dialogue and cooperation between Turkish stakeholders from various sectors to promote nature-based solutions and green infrastructure in cities
- Joint agreements signed between CSOs in Turkey and The Netherlands for sustainable and long-term cooperation on nature-based solutions and green infrastructure in cities
- Awareness raised in Turkey and The Netherlands on nature-based solutions and green infrastructure.
