UNA is currently the most extensive urban NBS database with cases and best practices from around the world.
UNE supports the creative process of urban planning by visualization of different scenarios.
UNE impact assessment is based on extensive research and modelling for NBS implementation.
Our Tools help in creating NBS impact models for business or educational purposes.
We provide personalized services utilizing our extensive database for individual, specialized NBS design projects.
The Urban Nature Explorer (UNE) is a web-based platform for early-stage, participatory planning, addressing urban sustainability challenges through the application of NBS. UNE has a map-based interface that allows contextual customization with real-time impact assessment, offering potential NBS to tackle local climate challenges. It is a full-fledged, autonomously usable tool to let people creatively and collaboratively experiment with solutions in a digital representation of their neighborhood, focused on challenges they care about.
We offer to tailor the tool according to specific local contexts, including:
The Urban Nature Atlas (UNA) is a knowledge base dedicated to showcasing the richness and value of NBS in cities worldwide. It is the most comprehensive database of urban NBS to date. Since its creation, the database has been reviewed and extended to stay relevant and useful for practitioners. The UNA was developed in 2017 as an output of Naturvation project, by Central European University (CEU) in collaboration with the Ecologic Institute and with further support by Durham University.
We consult corporate businesses on how to enhance their surroundings in a green way that also creates a healthy work environment with NBS.
We develop and deliver training, workshops, capacity building and education materials on urban nature implementation and on NBS.
We are actively participating in research projects and are open to collaborations in the field of NBS, urban nature planning, impact assessment, digital modelling and more.
We support decision-making on the municipality level about the scaling and deployment of urban nature-based solutions and green urban planning efforts.
We support bottom-up community organizations aiming to connect and enhance their local neighborhood through greening and conscious planning.
We offer technical support to urban professionals in their work with creative visualization, impact assessment with the use of our Urban Nature Atlas and Explorer tools.
