Biodiversidad y servicios ecosistémicos

Alarmados por la pérdida de biodiversidad recientemente, científicos que persiguen la conservación de la naturaleza, y cada vez más responsables políticos han comenzado a resaltar los servicios que los ecosistemas brindan, por ejemplo: alimentos, agua y aire limpios, espacios para recreación y hábitats para animales y plantas.

En colaboración con un grupo de educadores formales e informales, como científicos y gestores de bosques y vida silvestre, los estudiantes no solo aprenderán sobre la gestión sostenible de los ecosistemas, sino que también estudiarán diferentes servicios ecosistémicos y su valor para el bienestar de las sociedades. Para ello se utilizarán enfoques de aprendizaje colaborativos, basados en problemas e indagaciones junto con la Comunidad de Ciencia Abierta en Eslovenia para fomentar la comprensión y la apreciación de la diversidad de los servicios ecosistémicos. Aprovechando la experiencia de los socios de MULTIPLIERS, los estudiantes aprenderán que los servicios ecosistémicos pueden competir entre sí e incluso si pueden equilibrarse, puede haber compensaciones.
