As part of the Presidency of the Estonian Republic of the Council of the European Union, a flagship conference “Nature-based Solutions: From Innovation to Common-use” will be organized by the Ministry of the Environment of Estonia and the University of Tallinn. The conference will be held in Tallinn from 24 to 26 October 2017.

Nature-based solutions (NBS) offer ways of tackling societal challenges such as climate change, water security, food security, human health, and others though sustainable management and use of nature. For example, greening roofs or walls of buildings in urban areas can keep temperatures cooler during hot seasons, capture storm water, reduce air pollution, and increase human well-being while enhancing biodiversity.
