Restoring nature and biodiversity
There is a nature emergency
Scotland is nature positive
Help us restore nature and increase biodiversity
Our combined impact
Our work with you to restore nature and biodiversity
We’re working every day to help Scotland become nature positive. Through our training, education programmes, community activities and award schemes we inspire action for nature.
Our longstanding community programmes It’s Your Neighbourhood and Beautiful Scotland support and celebrate efforts to plant for biodiversity, and we have supported the Garden for Life Forum since 2015, bringing together third sector organisations with a common goal to protect and enhance nature.
Biodiversity action is embedded through our Climate Action Schools Framework, with one of the key Eco-Schools topics having this theme. We also launched a new learning programme Learning about Forests (LEAF) in 2022 which advocates outdoor learning, and have recently started to offer an SCQF level 4 Biodiversity Action course for secondary school pupils..
And, for the past seven years we have run a garden design and build competition for children and young people called Pocket Garden with thousands voting online annually for the public’s favourite design.
Our training offer includes accredited Climate Emergency Training for Nature and Biodiversity, as part of our efforts to support people become Carbon Literate and Nature Literate.
