Joining Oppla

Delbaere Consulting enters into a business partnership with Countryscape to become co-owner and manager of Oppla.

This month Delbaere Consulting agreed a business partnership with the Manchester-based company Countryscape to jointly own and run the Oppla non-profit organisation (EEIG).

Oppla is a global knowledge marketplace; a place where the latest thinking on natural capital, ecosystem services and nature-based solutions is brought together. In my previous job at ECNC I helped develop Oppla, launched it during the European ecosystem services conference and established its legal entity in 2016. This was part of the EU-funded research projects OpenNESS and OPERAs, which jointly developed a platform and repository for their work on turning the concept of ecosystem services into practice.

It is wonderful to now be able to join again and to help Oppla in its aim to simplify how we share, obtain and create knowledge to better manage our environment.
