GreenQuays Zoom-in 1: Making Breda’s nature-inclusive quays health-inclusive
Health benefits are among the many additional benefits that nature-based solution can potentially offer. In this podcast, UIA expert Birgit Georgi, discusses the options and the team’s journey for including positive health impacts together with the project partners
- Ton van Bleek from the NGO BLASt,
- Joost Barondrecht from Natuurplein de Baronie, the Federation of Nature Associations,
and collaborating external partners
- Linda van Loon, health researcher at GDD West Brabant, the regional health service,
- Rombout van Eekelen, urban ecologist at Breda municipality.
What has been the motivation for the different partners to include health benefits in the development of the quays? What are the lessons learned for combining a nature-inclusive design with a health-inclusive design? How will GreenQuays measure the health impacts and how can the results be used? Has the collaboration with external partners, such as the regional health service, supported new ideas, and has it vice versa impacted their work?
