As part of the Road to the Climate Adaptation Summit, EcoShape organizes the talk show ‘Road to successful Building with Nature projects’ and our book launch in the Netherlands.

The talk show is about the successful realization of Building with Nature projects and focuses on two Building with Nature projects: Mangrove restoration in Indonesia and Marker Wadden in the Netherlands. The project managers will explain the success factors and barriers they encountered in these projects. A panel of young engineers and advisers will ask them questions about successful implementation and upscaling of these types of projects.

After the discussion, EcoShape director Henk Nieboer hands over the first copy of the book “Building with Nature – Creating, implementing and upscaling Nature-based Solutions” to Delta Commissioner Peter Glas. The book will be available in the Netherlands from November, the international launch and availability will follow on January 25th 2021.
