CEU’s team launched a new tool developed as a contribution to the Horizon 2020-funded
NATURVATION project, the Urban Nature Explorer at the 9th European Conference on Sustainable Cities and Towns in Mannheim in a virtual session on October 2.
As a web-based platform, the Urban Nature Explorer helps develop and visualize alternative nature based solution (NBS) scenarios and assess their impact on selected urban sustainability challenges. The tool can be used in the early visioning stage of participatory planning processes. Its pilot version has been customized to a particular urban setting, but will be further developed to open the possibility of applying to any urban context.
