Registration is now open for our upcoming conference in Ghent, Belgium, and you can view the developing programme


Our next conference, Nature and Urban Wellbeing: Nature-Based Solutions to Societal Challenges, is fast approaching. You can now see the draft programme and register online. We have put together a rich and varied programme of talks (plenary and parallel sessions), panel discussions, an interactive poster session and a mini training course on Nature-Based Solutions concepts. There will also be workshops aimed primarily at the ALTER-Net community on Monday morning.

We are organising the conference together with the European Commission and under the auspices of the Latvian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. 'Nature and Urban Wellbeing' is relevant to research in many disciplines and communities, to EU policies and to practitioners, and the conference offers rich possibilities to share, learn and connect.

For this international conference, which takes place from 18 - 20 May 2015, we will return to the beautiful city of Ghent, Belgium and the Augustinian monastery, venue for our first major conference in 2013. We hope you will join us.
