The URBES project wins the BiodivERsA Prize for Excellence and Impact

BiodivERsA is very excited to announce the release of a video presenting the results of the URBES<https://www.iucn.org/regions/europe/projects/cities-and-regions/urbes-project> - Urban Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services - research project, funded by BiodivERsA under the 2010-11 BiodivERsA call on “Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services and their Valuation”.

The URBES project has been awarded the opportunity to present their work in an animated video as part of the BiodivERsA Prize for Excellence and Impact. This prize acknowledges the excellent, pioneering research performed in URBES. The project demonstrated, for the first time at this scale, the importance and the value of ecosystem services and nature-based solutions provided by urban biodiversity in European cities, enabling the authorities to work with these concepts in their urban planning strategies.

Check the video out here: What’s the role of nature? Scientists involved in the URBES project inspire sustainable urban planning for people and nature<https://youtu.be/sODnDWTKkZY>

We invite you to share it in your networks!

From now on, the prize will be awarded on a yearly basis to showcase the achievements of BiodivERsA-funded projects that have produced excellent science with concrete impacts for policy and/or society.

The Belgian Biodiversity Platform led the production of this video, along with BiodivERsA staff, URBES researchers, and the Belgian video production company, <https://squarefish.eu/fr> Squarefish<https://squarefish.eu/fr>.
