European conference on innovative financing for creating green cities, 26-27 March 2019, Manchester, UK.
It is increasingly recognised that green cities are successful cities. They are the places that offer high quality of life for citizens, provide opportunities for business, attract investment and ensure sustainable urban development. This will require a major shift in urban planning and development to improve health, wellbeing, climate and water resilience, as well as social and economic benefits.
There is a clear gap between the current levels of investment and the needs for financing nature-based solutions to respond to climate and water related challenges in cities. This conference organised by GrowGreen, is targeting private investors, insurance companies, urban developers, government, urban planners and practitioners, civil society and experts from across Europe and beyond who are interested in accelerating the uptake of nature to increase the resilience of cities. Opportunities for learning, capacity building and networking for financing green cities are at the heart of this event.
