UrbanByNature Brazil

The first country to pioneer a hub of the programme, Brazil hosts an active UrbanByNature community, facilitated by ICLEI Europe and ICLEI South America.

UrbanByNature kicked off in Brazil in 2018, with the webinar series starting in 2019 and coming to a close in June 2020. New opportunities come up regularly in the region, such as Osmos' Mentoring Programme to boost NBS Skills among Brazilian NBS Enterprises.

To be notified about future events, subscribe to the UrbanByNature Digest.

“The UrbanByNature and Osmos Mentoring Workshops were so inspiring that we, nature-based enterprises, felt motivated to create a group in order to develop common strategies to promote our work, in a way that takes advantage of our complementary skills, aiming to offer our services to potential clients in a broader perspective where different NBS approaches can be combined to address the client’s demand.”

João Guimarães, Aquaflora Meio Ambiente

Joao Guimaraes from Aquaflora

"The Mentoring Programme delivered by UrbanByNature and Osmos in Brazil was very well structured, organised and flexible. It used practical experiences from competent European counterparts to illustrate sound approaches to the implementation of private, governmental and community-based NBS initiatives. It keeps inspiring us all months after the completion of the programme!"
