The so-called “Buddy System” has been developed within the UNaLab project as a set of tools and activities to transfer knowledge and results about nature-based solutions from the front-runner cities to the follower cities. As part of the buddy activities organised between the cities, front-runner city Eindhoven and follower city Prague organised a buddy meeting in Prague in May.
The fourth Buddies Workshop took place on 26 November in Castellòn. It was organised in two sessions: a round-table discussion between the two groups of cities, and a discussion between the cities and Engineering about a tool to facilitate the sharing of ideas, questions and solutions between the cities.
This report provides city planners with examples of business models for selected nature-based solutions (NBS), as well as potential financing strategies that could support NBS implementation and operation efforts.
The 6th UNaLab Buddy System workshop was dedicated to the creation of effective promotional videos. The following tips and examples may be of interest to other cities working on videos to promote their projects.
