SFEI's Urban Nature Lab and the UN-Habitat Global Urban Lectures series have produced a video on SFEI's Making Nature's City report. The lecture demonstrates why urban conservation planning is an essential component of urban design, and illustrates how nature can be incorporated through strategic planning that yields critical benefits for both ecosystems and people. The video features SFEI scientists Erica Spotswood and Robin Grossinger presenting the seven principles of urban biodiversity planning and how they can help guide improvements in the vitality and resilience of our cities. 

UN-Habitat's Global Urban Lectures feature renowned experts discussing cutting-edge research and practical recommendations on advancing urban sustainability and the Sustainable Development Goals in cities. The sixth series features 10 lectures providing quick and efficient online learning tools for local government officials, students, academics and other urban professionals at a time when meetings and lectures are cancelled.
