Together with the European Commission and under the auspices of the Latvian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, ALTER-Net will host an international conference on Nature-Based Solutions. Relevant to research in many disciplines and communities, to EU policies and to practitioners, ‘Nature and Urban Wellbeing’ offers rich possibilities to share, learn and connect.
The emerging concept of Nature-Based Solutions offers a lot of possibilities regarding ecological quality, human health and wellbeing in urban environment.
