On October 12th PROGRESS project was present at a joint event organised by different Interreg Europe and Erasmus + Projects: BID-REX, RENATUR, PROGRESS, PERFECT and the Erasmus+ project Green4Care.

Enrique Doblas, PROGRESS coordinator at CREAF, briefly presented (link) on ecosystem services and their connection to health and wellbeing. And the first three good practice videos of PROGRESS were displayed and received very good comments at the session chat.

The aim of this session, organised as part of the EU Regions Week, was to inspire with best practices and tools on how to improve regional and municipal policies to protect nature and its services. Also explained was  the importance of active political and societal actions for its protection as well as new initiatives that focus on the role of social innovation and entrepreneurs in bringing the benefits of nature to society.

The session closing debate ended with participants creating this word-cloud of reflections of the session.
