This topic is about Nature and Biodiversity
This topic looks at the links between biodiversity, ecosystems, conservation, and the impact of human activity on the natural world.
When approaching this subject with pupils, it is important to make the connections between biodiversity and loss, and human population growth and change. All ecosystems have changed and developed over time, but the sustainability issue in this case is the increasing demands we are placing on ecosystems. Understanding change is key – both biological change as well as societal change.
A useful way to engage young people with nature is to develop and encourage a sense of awe, fascination, and wonder for the natural world. You can find links below to some useful resources and tools to help with this topic.
