On March 8 Salzburg Global Seminar livestreamed a panel discussion about creating equitable nature access for children in cities across the world.
The event was presented in partnership with the Children and Nature Network and National League of Cities who collaborate on the U.S.-based initiative called Cities Connecting Children to Nature, which provides city leaders with technical assistance, training and peer learning opportunities to increase equitable access to nature so that children, families and communities can thrive.
