Side event - Learning Tools for Biodiversity: the UNESCO/CBD Biodiversity Learning Kit
The side-event will present the joint UNESCO/CBD Biodiversity Learning Kit developed in the context of the International Year of Biodiversity and as a concrete contribution to the CEPA components of the UN Decade of Biodiversity. The major lessons learnt from the pilot testing of the Biodiversity Learning Kit, made up of two books (a teacher's manual presenting key notions on biodiversity and a booklet of 14 activities), through the UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet) will be shared. The session will also offer an opportunity to discuss the development and use of educational kits on biodiversity for teachers and trainers to raise awareness and educate young and wider public audiences through easy-to-use and appealing tools. Therefore, a few other teaching materials, developed by UNESCO and its partners, will be presented as well.
