Wednesday, 27 October 2021 - 15:00 to 16:00 (Europe/Brussels)

Bringing nature back to cities is critical for reducing emissions, cooling temperatures, preventing flooding and landslides as well as improving the health and wellbeing of urban citizens. But funding nature-based solutions (NbS) can be a tricky task for cities.

Join Urban Shift webinar series with a conversation between experts from C40 Cities and Freetown, Sierra Leone, on engaging businesses to implement nature-based solutions in urban environments. Shift Cities will hear of best practices and examples of city-business collaboration on NbS and learn about the benefits, challenges and opportunities created from private sector engagement in Freetown’s tree planting campaign.
