Impact So Far
We are working with Dividendo por Colombia on the upcoming 2019 Global Outdoor Classroom Day to engage with and raise awareness amongst school children on the importance of Colombia´s rich natural diversity. We are designing engagement approaches for communities directly involved in our socio-economic valuation research. In the UK we are designing different kinds of interpretation for the Eden Project that can be used to engage the UK public in the value of Colombian biodiversity, scientific research and sustainable livelihoods. We are also working with partners to create capacity building opportunities for public engagement that builds on Colombian skills, knowledge and assets.
Implement the outdoor classroom day, engage with researchers, journalists and policy makers to influence decision making on biodiversity.
