Connecting Nature Summit Series – Innovation Summit

Co-hosted by Greenspace Scotland and Glasgow City Council, from the 23rd to the 25th of March, the Innovation Summit will bring together an international audience to explore how we shift to sustainable, greener cities that deliver for their citizens using nature-based solutions. The Summit will showcase exemplar projects from across Europe and the world with a focus on Glasgow and Scotland. It will demonstrate methods being developed collaboratively by Connecting Nature partners to realise the benefits of nature in cities.

This year the Summit will have the participation of two Brazilian cities on the inclusion of nature-based solutions in their local climate action plans. Speakers will discuss the support needed for the financing, planning and delivery of nature-based solutions. Language will be Portuguese.

Chairs: Daniela Rizzi (ICLEI) and Victor Ferraz (ICLEI SAMS)

Speakers: Cecília Guerra (Development Bank of Latin America), Edilene Oliveira (Fortaleza Municipal Secretariat of Urbanism and Environment), Carlos Ribeiro (Recife Secretary for Environment and Sustainability)
