On 29th June – Connecting Nature Virtual Enterprise Summit –the potential of the nature-based economy to build back better after COVID
Join us online in June for the Connecting Nature Enterprise Summit!
Join us virtually from Poznan at the Connecting Nature Enterprise Summit as we explore the opportunities nature presents for job creation, enterprise development and how local and national governments can support the nature-based economy. We will share experiences and challenges faced by nature-based enterprises and cities from the Connecting Nature Enterprise Platform, Connecting Nature and H2020 funded projects. The Summit is a free event open to all. Check out our video now.
As countries and cities adapt to living with Covid-19 and implement recovery strategies they have been presented an opportunity to build back better and to use innovative solutions. The move to build back better has created enormous potential for nature and nature -based enterprises to be the engine for sustainable economic and jobs growth.
The Summit will explore the challenges and opportunities facing nature-based enterprises; cities, communities, policy makers and developers. Hosted on a virtual platform with panel discussions, presentations, workshops, capacity building sessions and plenty of opportunity to connect with other delegates.

BRINGING CITIES TO LIFE, BRINGING LIFE INTO CITIES
Coordinated by Trinity College Dublin, Connecting Nature is a consortium of 30 partners within 16 European countries, and hubs in Brazil, China, Korea & The Caucasus (Georgia and Armenia). We are co-working with local authorities, communities, industry partners, NGOs and academics who are investing in large scale implementation of nature–based projects in urban settings. We are measuring the impact of these initiatives on climate change adaptation, health and well-being, social cohesion and sustainable economic development in these cities. We are also developing a diversity of innovative actions to nurture the start-up and growth of commercial and social enterprises active in producing nature-based solutions and products.
