Biodiversity Literacy Workshop

23rd January 10:00 to 15:00
Join a leading global expert in biodiversity in this exciting and meaningful Future Me workshop activity. A student co-creation, the output will be a pilot training that is hoped will play a part of future Education for Sustainable Development here at Manchester Met, and potentially beyond!
This activity is offered as part of Future Me Week - five days of exciting opportunities to develop your skills, deepen understanding, gain experience and take steps towards an exciting Future You.

This workshop is your chance to co-create innovative training content alongside Daniel Turner of Animondial, lead author of ‘Nature Positive Travel and Tourism’, produced for international institutions including the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO). 

If you are interested in biodiversity or the co-creation of resources for education for sustainable development this workshop is your chance to be part of an exciting new project.

The aim of the workshop is to develop draft content, so that future learners will understand: 

  • The key definitions of biodiversity, what factors influence it, and how species have evolved to survive and to co-exist with others in ecosystems;   
  • How biodiversity is not evenly distributed across Planet Earth,
  • How biodiversity is essential for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); 
  • How to measure biodiversity and use this to understand the nature around us; 
  • How demands on the natural world are imposing an ever-growing strain on the biosphere and causing unprecedented global declines in biodiversity; 
  • How biodiversity decline is identified, and how this will likely affect us; 
  • How biodiversity loss and climate crises are intrinsically linked. Climate change is driving nature’s decline, while biodiversity loss impacts the ability to reduce carbon emissions and adapt to change; 
  • What measures are in place locally, nationally and globally to protect biodiversity; 
  • What we can do to reduce our impact and the benefits and disadvantage of taking action; 
  • How biodiversity impacts are an increasing fundamental aspect of business reporting;  
  • How we can motivate others to take action and gain confidence in expressing our Biodiversity Literacy to others.
