The implementation and mainstreaming of nature-based solutions (NBS) to address urban sustainability challenges is highly dependent both on how they come to be valued and the ways in which they can secure investment over the long-term. These issues are of central concern to the H2020 NATURVATION project (www.naturvation.eu). We will convene a small expert panel to exchange ideas and evidence on these two fundamental challenges, drawing on the knowledge being generated in the project as well as from a small number of invited experts. Our aim is both to develop joined-up thinking across the research, policy and practice communities, as well as to explore potential ways of working together in the future.
