The Living Labbers webinar series of the European Network of Living Labs showcases the variety of living labs across the globe. Realised in collaboration with the iSCAPE and UNaLab projects, the webinars are structured around the Urban Living Lab framework: providing insight into various aspects of living labs' contexts, innovations, governance and financing models, and even some personal views on their way of working and the people involved.

Next up in the series is UNaLab front-runner city Eindhoven.

Several locations within the Eindhoven city centre with different characteristics constitute Eindhoven's demonstration areas for nature-based solutions. Eindhoven has implemented green spaces in several streets within the city, which previously were completely paved. By using less pavement, less water is channeled into the sewerage system, which reduces the risk for flooding. Greening the city also helps to improve the air quality and tackles the heat stress problem.

Eindhoven will in this webinar present how the city through the Urban Living Lab methodology has implemented nature-based solutions to tackle a range of urban challenges.
