Workshop on redesigning the landscape, connecting ecosystems and benefitting from their services by Green Infrastructure

7 October 2013 at 08:00 - 12:00

| Free

CEEweb for Biodiversity and ECNC are organizing a workshop on ‘Redesigning the landscape, connecting ecosystems and benefitting from their services through Green Infrastructure’ on 7th October 2013, Budapest, Hungary. The main aim of the workshop is to promote the concept of Green Infrastructure, raise awareness of potential projects and their benefits and to induce the creation of Green Infrastructure projects among national decision-makers, local authorities and NGOs.

Earlier this year, the European Commission released its ‘Green Infrastructure – Enhancing Europe’s Natural Capital’, which aims under Target 2 of the Biodiversity Strategy to maintain and enhance Europe’s ecosystems and their services. The strategy is in line with the Commission’s efforts to mapping and assessing ecosystem services (MAES) and restoring ecosystems, considering the fact that most of Europe’s ecosystems are assessed to be degraded.

The workshop’s outcome will feed into a brochure and the 2nd European Conference on Regions and Biodiversity: ‘Local action for biodiversity: the role of regions‘, which will take place on 19-20 November 2013, in Brussels, Belgium and to a brochure that will contain recommendations for decision makers and stakeholders on how to develop Green Infrastructure projects and how these projects benefit both society and the environment. The workshop aims to host at least 20 participants mostly from the CEE countries from national and local authorities, NGOs, the field of science and other stakeholders.
