Integrating nature into urban and peri-urban spaces has a profound impact on both the environment and human well-being. In this Cities Talk Nature webinar we will explore how nature-based solutions (NBS) extend beyond ecological benefits, significantly influencing the physical and mental health of communities.

We'll discuss how access to green spaces, sustainable landscaping, and biodiversity initiatives not only enhance our surroundings but also contribute to improved public health outcomes. Join us for an enlightening discussion on the transformative potential of nature-based solutions in fostering healthier and more resilient communities.

  • Carolyn Daher, Coordinator, Urban Planning, Environment and Health Initiative, Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), Spain
