"How can we co-create nature-based solutions?"

Date: 11 July 2019

Time:   10-11:00 AM (BRT), 3-4:00 PM (CEST)

Cities and researchers will share experiences and knowledge on how to best co-create nature-based solutions. Collaborating amongst different stakeholders to plan, design, implement and/or maintain nature-based interventions together can be challenging to begin with but ultimately rewarding. The speakers will unpack key ingredients to successfully co-create nature-based solutions and share how this can work in practice.

  • Katharina Hölscher (Research Fellow) and Marleen Lodder (Research Fellow), Dutch Research Institute For Transitions (DRIFT), Rotterdam (Netherlands)
  • Katrien Van De Sijpe (Head of Department of Environment and Sustainability), Peter Vos (Sustainability expert), and Mien Quartier (Expert in Social Innovation), City of Genk (Belgium) (tbc)
  • N.N., City of Niterói (Brazil) (tbc)

The webinar will be moderated by Alice Reil and Daniela Rizzi (ICLEI Europe) as well as Sophia Picarelli (ICLEI South America).
In this webinar you will learn about:

  • why co-creation matters
  • the concept of co-creation
  • design principles for co-creation
  • conditions for putting co-creation into practice
  • “do's” and “don't's”
  • experiences of Niteroi (Brazil) in using co-creation in the field of urban sustainability, and
  • experiences of Genk (Belgium) in co-planning nature-based solutions
