Engaging Communities for Biodiversity Conservation: Education for Sustainable Development Projects from the Global RCE Network

This publication from UNU-IAS highlights innovative biodiversity education projects developed by RCEs throughout the period of the Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) from 2015-2019. Featured are 12 case studies that focused on SDG 14 (Life Below Water) or SDG 15 (Life on Land), which served to educate, engage, and spur action in communities towards the protection and restoration of ecosystems, species, and habitats. The innovative solutions (also featured in this video) looks at how RCEs, in the face of local biodiversity issues and challenges, developed innovative ways to bring about action through education in their local context and region.
