Biodiversity Week 2022
The current climate crisis coincides with a crisis in nature, driven by human activity. COP15 United Nations Biodiversity Conference takes place this December in Montreal, Canada, bringing together countries from all over the world to agree on targets to make sure we halt the current loss in biodiversity.
But how can we stop the age of extinction?
We can start by understanding how vital every single component of our living world is, and reminding ourselves our position in the orchestra of life: we are not the conductors, but musicians playing alongside equally special and unique musicians.
Our COP15 Biodiversity live lesson is an invitation to keep learning how magnificent and vital every single component of our living planet is, and how important it is for us all to work hard to not lose them.
The live lesson includes a short, inspiring lesson for Early Years-P3 broadcast from the RZSS Edinburgh Zoo; a full morning for P4-P7 classes with two workshops delivered by author, naturalist and eco-journalist Sarah Roberts and by experts from RZSS Highland Wildlife Park, and a pre-recorded workshop for High Schools.
We are grateful for the support of our friends at Scottish Book Trust and Royal Zoological Society of Scotland for helping to make these lessons possible.
