Public Engagement

Public Engagement and Outreach

The project is conceptualised to create a collaborative platform and establish a network for generating widespread understanding and appreciation for India’s rich biodiversity heritage and its relationship to human well-being. Our aim is to build a cohesive outreach programme for public engagement and to foster youth leadership in biodiversity related work.

Our Objectives

To bring together the best of people and institutions working on Biodiversity Science in India to foster collaboration towards making biodiversity and its links to human well-being part of public imagination, discourse and action

Create and test models for youth-led local initiatives primarily in rural India towards decentalised, and locally relevant awareness and action campaigns.

Produce a range of communication products and initiatives to enhance public engagement, including offline and online activities, infographics, posters, video and audio materials, printed collaterals and activity-based approaches towards understanding and appreciation of biodiversity.
