The annual conference of the Nature-based Solutions Initiative will be held on June 18-20 2024 at Oxford University on the theme "Growing Positive Change".

Over three days, the event will bring together interdisciplinary researchers with practitioners and decision makers from the public and private sectors, as well as Indigenous voices from around the world, to discuss and co-create an action plan for nature-based solutions to support positive social-environmental change.

The conference will examine the evidence for the benefits of nature-based solutions beyond carbon capture, in particular for human and ecological health, climate change adaptation, humanitarian crises and food security, and tackle the role of adaptive management in resilience. It will also explore how to deal with uncertainty on the socio-ecological outcomes of nature-based solutions, and ensure that governance, markets and finance can act together in support of them, discussing, even, how the economy might be transformed so that it enhances rather than weakens the web of life. Finally, the conference will explore the potential healthy benefits of a nature-based approach, as well as how to rekindle a soulful human connection with nature.

Registration is now open.
