CitiesWithNature and COVID-19

In the time of the COVID-19 global pandemic, our network of cities and regions is on the frontline of response. The pandemic is calling us to increasingly connect online. CitiesWithNature, as a unique, next-generation initiative, is supporting an online community of practice, enabling learning and action around integrating nature in cities and (re)connecting people with nature. As almost half of humankind have lesser or even no options to connect with nature outdoors in these trying times, many are realising anew just how essential our connection with nature is for our own health and wellbeing, and how deeply it is longed for, once we are separated from it.  We all need nature, even more so in these unprecedented times where the fast-changing daily dynamics of COVID-19 are consuming and fundamentally altering our lives.
