Tero supports and participates in the Management Board of Naturalliance, the portal that aims to help everyone whose work or recreation depends on nature. Naturalliance is building up the knowledge people need, in their own language, for local decisions to manage and restore land, water and wildlife, whilst recording the good work done for nature across Europe. Tero has also developed a crowdsourcing platform that encourages the creativity of citizens, by enabling them to share ideas and suggestions on public transport innovations. We are currently validating the platform in four European metropolitan areas, under the Horizon 2020 CIPTEC (www.ciptec.eu) project.

Brief description of project: 
TESS has designed a decision support system that can make it easy for policy makers to integrate local knowledge into their decision making, while also guiding and encouraging local activities that restore and maintain biodiversity and ecosystem services. Our vision is to enlighten, encourage and empower local communities to support biodiversity restoration across Europe, through an internet system that unifies all available knowledge to guide decisions for the benefit of biodiversity and livelihoods.
