Join NaturaConnect’s webinar to explore different Nature Future Scenarios that will help to shape the design of a coherent and resilient TEN-N. We will discover how the Nature Future Scenarios can be translated into land use scenarios, how they can be used for identifying connectivity and conservation priorities and finally, how these could inform the design of the TEN-N.

The nature future scenarios are underpinned by the Nature Futures Framework, which was developed by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) that informs the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The framework includes three different value perspectives of nature, namely: nature for nature, nature for culture and nature for society. All three value perspectives are envisaged to be considered when developing NaturaConnect’s blueprint for the TEN-N of conserved areas. 

During the webinar, we will share insights and draft narratives from a previous workshop and will ask for your input on their current state of development. The TEN-N research and design will be further shaped by your feedback during the webinar. 

Come and join the webinar to share your experience and views on the Nature Future Scenarios! We welcome the participation of different sectors and practitioners in the field, including protected area managers, agricultural and private sectors, ministries and spatial planning authorities.
