Harnessing the potential of nature-based solutions to meet net-zero and support a flourishing nature-positive economy
This webinar will provide an overview of the role of nature-based solutions in helping nations and companies to meet their net-zero and nature-positive pledges, without compromising efforts to slow warming by keeping fossil fuels in the ground.

We will discuss what good looks like when it comes to implementing, financing and governing nature-based solutions and how best to ensure nature-based approaches harmonise with other critical climate solutions.

‘We have built our economies as if nature has no value; climate change and pandemics are showing us this not sustainable and that it is now time to repay our vast debt to nature.’ Professor Nathalie Seddon

In this webinar we will hear from leading practitioners at the intersection of research and the real world, developing ecologically and socially robust solutions for companies and informing global and local policies. The webinar will also introduce a new course launching at the end of September 2022.
