This project will utilise Research-by-Design to produce interdisciplinary co-development of nature based solutions. Research-by-Design will take place during the Living Lab events, which are physical spaces where citizens, associations/action groups, parrains, experts (scientists, designers) and researchers gather for workshops to exchange knowledge and to co-produce tangible outputs. These outputs will then be translated into policy options, which may be used to inform regeneration projects in Brussels. The Living Lab will also serve as a platform for sharing project outcomes, engaging in learning activities, and linking science and citizens/stakeholders.

Living Lab Workshop 1


Bruxelles Environnement

The CO-NATURE Living Lab brings together actors that are closely involved with, or interested in, co-producing scenarios for nature-based urban regeneration. Currently the target group is institutions, experts and practitioners, and will gradually evolve to a high degree of citizen involvement.


The first Living Lab Workshop has four objectives

  1. To introduce the CO-NATURE project to stakeholders and workshop participants;

  2. To present the progress made in year one of the project, where the focus is on:
    a catalog of nature-based solutions for Brussels
    and perception of green space value in Brussels;

  3. Introduce related research: CLEARINGHOUSE project on urban tree-based solutions;

  4. In a collaborative way, indicate focus areas (spatial and thematic), and discuss implementation strategies.
