Inspiring for Biodiversity

Empowerment of European Citizens for Action through Education on Biodiversity

 

In the past few years, climate change and the environment have become important topics of discussion in Europe. However, studies show how little people still know about the importance of biodiversity and its value to the environment.

 

For this reason, Global Nature Fund and 5 other European partners, have decided to join forces and start a new project: Inspiring for Biodiversity. This Erasmus+ project aims to develop a strategic partnership at European level in order to assess practices concerning the education of adults on biodiversity and to improve the quality and offer of such.

 

We want to develop a set of innovative and successful pedagogical material on biodiversity and a specific guide to raise the awareness of European CSOs and other stakeholders. The project will provide a tool kit for educators working on this topic, helping people to understand better the concept of biodiversity and its connection with daily life. The main goal is to increase the general level of consciousness on biodiversity. The material will be available for the broad public.

 

In this project, Global Nature Fund can count on the help of 5 organizations:

MITTETULUNDUSUHING PEIPSI KOOSTOO KESKUS - Estonia

Ekopolis Foundation - Slovakia

Global2000 - Austria

Stowarzyszenie Ekologiczne "Etna" - Poland

Balatoni Integrációs és Fejlesztési Ügynökség Közhasznú Nonprofit Kft. LBDCA – Hungary

Despite the challenges that the COVID-19 poses to all of us, we are carry on with our activities. In June 2020, after having completed the first phase of the project that consisted in analysis of the state of the art in our six countries, we will start the second phase.

 

This second phase is of fundamental importance to establish a common strategy and develop a program covering 6 educational “focus areas” on biodiversity that will be the base to create our 30 new inspiring educational tools.
