The GrowGreen Green Cities Training Programme supports cities of all sizes in developing and implementing strategies for nature-based solutions. It follows the structure of the Green Cities Framework, a process for systematically producing a nature-based solutions strategy grounded in evidence and co-developed with stakeholders and ensuring it is put into practice. Each unit of the Framework and therefore the Programme outlines a step in the process towards this goal.
The Training Programme consists of a toolkit, providing GrowGreen materials and external references that provide guidance, tools and information to support each unit of the Framework.
GrowGreen runs events and training sessions to dive into the issues tackled in each unit in more depth. The outcomes from these sessions are included in the Training Programme so that other cities can benefit from the material.
Lastly, the GrowGreen cities are supported with resources, peer support and internal training sessions to meet the specific needs they encounter in the process of developing nature-based solutions strategies.
