Through the BIG Project, Future Position X is now part of the Natura Network as an official partner.
The Nature-based Solutions for Urban Resilience in the Anthropocene (NATURA) project links networks in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, North and Latin America, and globally to enhance connectivity among the world’s scholars and practitioners and improve the prospects for global urban sustainability. NATURA exchanges knowledge, shares data, and enhances communication among research disciplines and across the research-practice divide to advance urban resilience in face of growing threats of extreme weather events. Through all-hands meetings, thematic working groups, regional nodes, and synthesis writing workshops, NATURA will accomplish the goals of synthesis and data sharing, and network coordination.
– FPX will have the opportunity to be a regional node, and to be part of a thematic working group. We will present the BIG project to the network and hopefully start exchange knowledge and results with other connected partners, says Matteo Giusti, project manager of BIG project.
