Your great idea could become a successful nature-based enterprise. 

What’s a Nature-Based enterprise? 

  • It uses nature directly or indirectly as a key part of its product, service or process. 
  • It also supports climate change, health & wellbeing and biodiversity policy agendas. 
  • It’s not tied to a legal structure and can be a social enterprise, a collective, a charity or a for-profit business. 

The initiative is part of the wider Connecting Nature project that supports the delivery of nature-based solutions in cities across Europe. Glasgow City Council and greenspace scotland are both partners in the project.
