On 28 November, NBS EduWORLD will hold its first annual virtual education event. It will gather education experts and nature-based solutions (NBS) practitioners from across Europe. This unprecedented community gathering will be the opportunity to take stock and further discuss the first outcomes of the project regarding the benefits and current situation of NBS education.
This public event will gather a pan-European community of NBS practitioners, teachers, education experts, NGOs, representatives from Ministries of Education, EU institutions or other public authorities are warmly invited to join this online event.
This first event will focus on the topic of how to mainstream NBS education across all levels of education. It will be the opportunity to take stock and further discuss the first outcomes of the project regarding the benefits and current situation of NBS education. The project partners will present their experience in Almada (Portugal), Offaly County (Ireland) and Paris (France) as demonstrators sites of NBS education. Participants will be able to learn from each other and share their views on how to mainstream NBS education across all levels of education.
Why do we need NBS education? What are the benefits of NBS education? What have we learnt in the last year about good practices for education and NBS practitioners' collaboration? How can the NBS education community support the application of the four areas of the GreenComp (the European sustainability competence framework)?
The event will take place online from 10:00 to 12:00 AM CET. Participation will be free and open to all interested stakeholders upon registration. An agenda will be available soon.
