There is growing recognition of the need for nature-based solutions (NBS) to enhance the resilience of our ecosystems, built environments, and communities. There is also a growing need to focus on our own health and wellbeing and reconnect post-Covid.  

The first in our series of exploring NBS and the benefits of connecting with nature will be a site-visit of Cator Park, Kidbrooke Village learning and experiencing the value of NBS to our cities, and to ourselves. 

Cator Park at Kidbrooke Village is an award-winning example of how urban NBS can significantly increase brownfield sites’ ecological value while creating resilient, restorative places for local communities.   

In partnership with the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Berkeley Group worked with the London Wildlife Trust and HTA Design to increase biodiversity and encourage birds, mammals and insects to nest amongst the ponds, wetlands, trees and wildflowers on the site.  

Our site visit will outline the collaborative process through which the principles of nature-based solutions were embedded, consider challenges and opportunities, and enable attendees to explore and experience the multi-layered benefits and value of NBS. 

We will also take time to reflect on how places affect our wellbeing, and the value of nature in our urban environments. 

Who should attend

Developers, design consultants, local authorities, and any built environment professionals open to advocating for nature-based solutions.
