We have been participating in several events presenting some of the work from the
S-ITUATION project the last few weeks.
NBS workshop in Iceland
Both S-ITUATION project leader Leonard Sandin and researcher Samaneh Sadat Nickayin participated in a workshop on Nature-based Solutions 5.-6. September in Iceland.
Leonard talked about lessons learned from Europe, while Samaneh gave a presentation on Nature-based Solutions for aquatic ecosystems.
The workshop was arranged by ON Power. Watch a recording or read more about the event on this Facebook page.

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.
“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!
