NbS Conference 2022 announced
It is our pleasure to announce that on the 5-7th of July we will be hosting our Nature-based Solutions Conference 2022, held in the Natural History Museum, the Oxford Martin School, University of Oxford and online. We will be bringing together leading researchers from the social and natural sciences, engineering and economics, along with practitioners, policymakers, civil society actors and business leaders. The mission of the conference is to enhance understanding of the value of nature-based solutions to societal challenges and to help ensure they support thriving human societies and ecosystems without compromising efforts to keep fossil fuels in the ground. A cross-cutting theme will be the need to encompass the multiplicity of stakeholders that are involved and/or affected by NbS, including their diverse values, interests and rights.
The conference will consist of 11 2-hour sessions across three days, with each including diverse speakers from across research, practice, and policy, and case studies that encompass the global north and south, urban and rural. There will also be opportunities to share work during in-person and virtual poster sessions each day. The conference venue at the Oxford Natural History Museum will also include immersive art and nature experiences. Some of the confirmed speakers to date include Inger Andersen, Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Marc Palahi, Director of the European Forest Institute, and Musonda Mumba, Chair of the Global Partnership for Forest & Landscape Restoration (GPFLR).
