Engaging People in Biodiversity Issues Resource

The Natural History Consortium worked with Defra, the People Engagement Group and Simon Christmas Ltd on a project to enable the environmental engagement sector to make best use of the latest evidence in the Defra commissioned report Engaging People in Biodiversity Issues, and to gain further insights into how the sector could be supported to further build its capacity to develop effective approaches to biodiversity engagement.

The project included a series of workshops, sessions at Communicate 2013: Stories for Change, and the production of an online resource developing the recommendations of the research report. The final project report collated a number of insights from the project as to how further initiatives could support capacity building within the sector.
