Brownfield Intelligence Network
Connecting the brownfield community through networking and learning
Environment Analyst's Brownfield Intelligence Network is designed to bring together the brownfield community through conferences, virtual events and networking.
We are hosting a range of upcoming virtual conferences, on brownfield redevelopment, remediation, planning and regeneration, and waste management. We are also hosting a series of Network events, including webinars and roundtables, which are exclusive to Corporate Members and Network Pass holders.
IGNITION - Financing Urban Nature-Based Solutions to the Climate Emergency
The Greater Manchester IGNITION project is a multi-partner, innovation project working across government, academia, business and communities to establish innovative ways of financing nature-based solutions (NBS) that build urban resilience to climate change.
This webinar will provide an overview of the progress to date in progressing towards a point where investment in NBS is business as usual, including:
The development of an NBS evidence base which brings together over 1000 sources of data to demonstrate the range of environmental, social and economic benefits of various NBS
The creation of a living lab to further inform and build confidence in investment in NBS
Progress towards establishing a strategic outline case for investment in SuDS in non-domestic properties
The lessons learnt and ongoing challenges of translating value flows of NBS into financial flows that deliver return on investment.
We have an expansive series of upcoming Network events, including virtual roundtables, panel discussions and networking sessions, which are available exclusively to Corporate Members and Network Pass holders.
These events cover topics from brownfield and contaminated land management, implementing the UN SDGs, biodiversity, SuDs, planning, remediation, natural capital and more.
A Network Pass gives you unlimited, company-wide access to our upcoming virtual training events for one year.
