Alongside climate change, the unprecedented biodiversity loss due to human activity presents a global emergency. The preservation of biodiversity is essential for meeting global climate goals and protecting the wellbeing of people and society as a whole. The effective protection of local biodiversity can be found at the crossroads of community engagement, technical capacity and political will.
In April’s Forum Lab (22 April 2021, 4.30-6.00 p.p. CET), we will learn from projects that combined real ambition with strong commitment from local communities for the protection of local biodiversity: from Ireland, India, Switzerland and South Africa.
