The University of Durham leads the €7.8 million multi-partner NATURVATION (NATure-based URban innovation) project funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. The project involves 14 institutions spanning the areas of research, policy and practice in six European countries with international partners in Africa, Asia, Australia, Latin America, and North America.
The project's objective is to understand how innovations with nature-based solutions (NBS) can unlock the potential for sustainable urban development. It takes a transdisciplinary, internationally comparative approach to capture the multiple impacts and values of these nature-based solutions.
NATURVATION aims to have real-world impact through nature-based solutions.
