The Antwerp Declaration on Ecosystem Services was launched during the European Ecosystem Services Conference 2016.
The declaration, with the scope to deliver societal impact, is based on 3 pillars: refocus on principles of sustainability, reclaim the notion of value and expand collaboration.
One of the explicated needs is “Bring business and researchers together to encourage innovation and creation of new flexible business models that integrate ecosystem services”. Ecolinfa is very active in bring business and scientific aspects together, to give value to nature and ecosystem service and find innovative approaches to encourage new financing and governance models.
