Diversity of values for countering biodiversity loss

Event posted by Kassia Rudd
Thursday, 14 March 2024 - 11:00 to 12:30 (Europe/Brussels)

Join the first session of the event series ‘Local actions for a SHARED GREEN DEAL’ and discover the essential connection between biodiversity and the cultural fabric of European communities, both rural and urban.

After a journey across four sets of inspirational local actions in Slovenia, Ireland, Greece, and Sweden experts and local experiment leaders will unravel the various ways in which biodiversity is perceived by adults around Europe, in different contexts and what underlying cultural values can help mobilize the transformative change needed for the ambitious EU Green Deal’s biodiversity goals and targets to be met.

During the online event, SHARED GREEN DEAL’s Biodiversity stream will also show how the work, based on social science, anticipates supporting policy makers to reconcile the disconnect that, seemingly, most Europeans experience from their local biodiversity.

Register now to join the session on 14 March, from 11.00-12.30 CET.
