Cities are at a crossroads, moving from a traditional development model to an urban regeneration process that promotes a sustainable, inclusive, healthy, innovative and equitable change in dialogue with citizens and nature.

Nature for Innovative and Inclusive Urban Regeneration (NATiURB) is the first international conference organised by URBiNAT, an H2020 project, funded under the European programme Demonstrating innovative nature-based solutions in cities
