Fun and informative, I'd recommend this course to anyone interested in learning about how to increase/improve nature based solutions in urban environments. The videos and case studies did a good job explaining problems, opportunities and possible solutions. The Urban Atlas, Citizen handbook and other guides can easily be used to keep the learning going.

A lot of good educational stuff. But it felt to short and little when I got engaged in the subject. Now I have to find a new course - learn more. i bit tuff with language. Make sure that we can wiew all the projects, ,there are much to learn from each other. A minor set back is the failing map. A good change with videos, made the subject more vivid.

It was a great learning experience, where I had the opportunity to deepen my knowledge in nature-based solutions, urban development and management, sustainable development and other related fields. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in urban planning, urban design, landscape architecture, architecture or geography.

The amount of knowledge that is being shared is tremendous! I would like to have more case studies or examples of different cities. Also, a real-time project which we as students/learners can take up could be good as well. All in all, the course was excellently designed but there is room for more examples as stated above.

The course offered a really good overview of all most important aspects worth considering in the context of introducing and mainstreaming NBS systemically, involving all relevant sectors and stakeholders. It was a great pleasure going through this very well-put-together course and I have learned a lot. Thank you!

Very in-depth and well-rounded set of lessons and readings. The Week 2 Peer Review Assignment was a nice challenge but could be moved to week 4 in order to help people have a better grasp of all the facets involving NBS. All in all, I would recommend this course.
