Case Study | Connecting Nature


About Connecting Nature:

Connecting Nature is an EU funded Horizon 2020 Innovation Action whose goal is to position Europe as a global leader in the innovation and implementation of nature-based solutions,

The Connecting Nature Enterprise Platform is a stand-alone innovation funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programe of the European Union Grant Agreement No 730222.


Demand for nature-based solutions to climate change has increased exponentially in line with recognition that they could provide around 30% of the mitigation required to stabilise global warming to below 2oC. However, as cities all over the world demand more nature-based solutions, a new challenge has emerged. Recent reports have shown that cities are having problems finding skilled and experienced suppliers to meet the burgeoning demand.

  • Opens up networking and support opportunities for enterprises operating in this sector.
