GoNaturePositive! 2nd stakeholder workshop, Oxford

Date & Time: June 21st Friday, 9am – 12am UK time
Venue: TBC, on University of Oxford premises

Please register interest by 12.00 GMT Friday May 24th, 2024

Are you involved in supporting the urgent transition towards a nature-positive economy – working in industry, public-sector, community-interest or environmental bodies. We have a limited number of places available and we invite you to submit an expression of interest to attend our stakeholder workshop. You will have the opportunity to help us shape how the European Union recognises the concept of a nature-positive economy and how we get there, particularly in terms of transforming future business, governance, markets and finance.

We will announce our decision by Friday May 31st regarding who has been invited based on a fair review of all expressions of interest, ensuring representation from all stakeholder groups. Anyone not invited to this will be added to our mailing list and members of the team may be in touch to invite other ways of direct participation in the GoNaturePositive! project.

What is the purpose of the research project?

The GoNaturePositive! project is funded through the EU Horizon Europe research programme. It runs from Jan 2024 for four years, and the first task is to define what is meant by the term Nature-Positive Economy, what does this look like from various perspectives, such as public-policy makers, large and small businesses, environmental bodies and the general public and levels (global, EU, national and sectoral).

The GoNaturePositive! team will review relevant literature and conduct workshops and focus groups from March 2024 onwards to capture current knowledge and understanding of the term Nature-Positive Economy. This will lead to a new conceptual framework that will help define the scope and content for future policy, strategy and practice.

The deadline for expression of interest in participating in the workshop is 12.00 GMT Friday May 24th, 2024.
