Nowadays, we often hear about sustainable projects and sustainable activities. As well as how different stakeholders and businesses are trying to put systems in place to make that sustainability happen. What about our cities? How can these places where millions of people live be more sustainable, for example through the promotion of urban biodiversity? Co-Bio aims to address these challenges in a two-year journey, offering concrete ways to deal with the biodiversity crisis.

Global population growth and the development of international economies have dramatically increased demands on land use systems. This has led to a widespread decline in biodiversity, and 80 percent of European habitats are now in poor condition. At the same time, the lack of cohesive measures, such as shared guidelines and a network of collaboration among different stakeholders, has led to unsuccessful initiatives. Co-Bio intends to solve this problem through co-creation: that is, by initiating a democratic process to develop shared solutions. The partnership will therefore develop an educational methodology to facilitate local co-creation on urban biodiversity, transferring skills and knowledge essential for the implementation of tangible projects. By addressing the biodiversity crisis with concrete actions, Co-Bio is committed to driving this change!

Co-Bio will create a practical guide to help partners actively engage local stakeholders by providing essential tools and information to support urban biodiversity. It will also disseminate relevant skills and abilities across Europe, actively engaging people in solving complex social problems and raising awareness about the importance of urban biodiversity.
