ReNature 2nd Interdisciplinary Training School

The ReNature 2nd Interdisciplinary Training School aims to provide participants with an understanding of opportunities to mainstream nature-based solutions in urban planning, and how the design of nature-based solutions can provide co-benefits to biodiversity and ecosystem service flows, leading to an improvement in human well-being. Therefore, the training school will include lectures by experts working in different sectors, including ecology, social-environmental justice, nature-based solutions design, landscape architecture, urban planning and practitioners’ perspectives.

The training school will include problem-based sessions that aim to stimulate professional development and further networking between participants during the course and also in the aftermaths.

Through a problem-based learning approach, students will be asked to work in multidisciplinary groups, identify context-adapted nature-based solutions, assess ecosystem services and the arising benefits of nature-based solutions implementation, and then present these to practitioners and policy-makers.

The participants will work on 3 real case-studies that have recently undergone public consultation in Malta, and which provide an opportunity to implement nature-based solutions that address key societal challenges, including air and noise pollution, stormwater management, and access to nature and opportunities for recreation and nature-based tourism.
