Naturvation in Singapore

NATURVATION researcher Attila Katona kicked-off his 5-week research visit in Singapore at the Future Cities Laboratory by offering a public lecture on European Union insights and experience.

In cooperation with the Singaporean government and key stakeholders, the three focus areas of his research in the city are the renaturalisation of urban canals and waterways; the purposeful use of public and hospital gardens for healing and therapy to support urban elderly; and the conservation of tropical mangrove swamps and ecosystems. Attila studies the governance of urban nature-based solutions in Singapore and three other cities in China, Canada, and Hungary in the framework of the NATURVATION Project and his PhD research at the Central European University.
