"Spaces beyond our cities: health for humans, wealth for nature" is the topic for our final dissemination event, taking place in Brussels and online on 14th June 2023. It will conclude three years of interregional exchange, learning, and co-creation. You will be seeing movies of our actions – how they were designed and implemented – and get the chance to discuss with our partners about their good practices, challenges, and solutions on policy improvements to protect peri-urban open spaces.
For our final event, we are both: going to Brussels, where our partner VLM will welcome face-to-face participants and staying on the computer to make sure to keep the most important bits online for you!
