ThinkNature Interviews

The ThinkNature project organized a series of short video recorded interviews with conference participants during the H2020 Clustering Action "Transforming Cities, Enhancing Well-being: innovating with nature-based solutions" which took place at the University of A Coruña in 2018 . The interviewees are NBS experts of different background and expertise (policy makers, market actors, scientists, end users/authorities), providing a range of perspectives and different insights into the present and the future of NBS.
