NbS Projects

TURAS
TURAS

This project launched in October 2011 and officially ending at the end of September 2016. At the heart of this project was the desire to co-create working links between different agencies involved in city-making, with communities at the centre. In the end, TURASdevised over 80 different novel ideas and processes that would enable communities to transition to a more resilient future. These results are currently accessible from the TURAS website and in the future will be accessible from Oppla -a new knowledge marketplace where the latest thinking on ecosystem services, natural capital and nature-based solutions is brought together. Although the EU investment in TURAS has ended, the next step of the journey has already begun and with unwavering commitment from the partners, communities and companies, we look forward to a better future.
