What is Nature+?
Nature +, The Trinity Centre for Biodiversity and Sustainable Nature-based solutions is a multidisciplinary team of researchers based in Trinity College Dublin that makes discoveries about the natural world and human interactions with nature, and develops solutions for quantifying and sustainably managing natural capital.
Human health and wellbeing depend on functional ecosystems, geosystems and atmospheric systems, and the services they provide.
They can be thought of as our natural capital: the world’s stocks of living and nonliving resources including air, soils, water, plants, microbes and animals.
This natural capital directly or indirectly drives economic activity, but is also impacted by it. The Nature + group works across disciplines and multiple stakeholders including Businesses, Community groups and Local Authorities, to design future-proof solutions for sustainable provision of ecosystem goods and services that underpin health, wellbeing and economic activity.
