Seminar and environment prize in Faroe Islands

On 1. September, the nominations for the Nordic Council Environment Prize 2022 were announced in an event at the Nordic House in the Faroe Islands.

This was accompanied by a seminar on Nature-based Solutions, where S-ITUATION project leader Leonard Sandin participated online.

Leonard Sandin (on the screen to the left) presented S-ITUATION in the seminar on NBS in the Nordic context.

“The loss of biodiversity and its harmful effects on human health and well-being are becoming increasingly clear. It’s obvious that there’s a growing need for solutions that have nature at their core”, said Sauli Rouhinen, chair of the adjudication committee for the Nordic Council Environment Prize.

There are also more exiting events on Nature-based Solutions coming up soon.

On 26.-28. September there will be a seminar on NBS in Brussels, which also prepares for the launch of a new Nordic Hub for Nature-based Solutions.

The hub will be launched in Copenhagen, Denmark 13. October – and the team of S-ITUATION researchers will be present.

We look forward to meet there!
