Biologisk mångfald och ekosystemtjänster

Förlusten av biologisk mångfald oroar forskare, naturvårdare och allt fler beslutsfattare som på senare tid har börjat lyfta fram de tjänster som ekosystemen tillhandahåller, t.ex. livsmedel, rent vatten och ren luft, platser för rekreation och livsmiljöer för djur och växter.

I samarbete med formella och informella utbildare, t.ex. forskare och naturförvaltare, kommer eleverna inte bara att lära sig om hållbar ekosystemförvaltning utan också studera olika ekosystemtjänster och deras värde för samhällets välbefinnande. Genom att använda samarbets-, problem- och undersökningsbaserade inlärningsmetoder i en första Open Science Community i Slovenien, kommer de att kunna förstå och uppskatta mångfalden av ekosystemtjänster. Genom att dra nytta av expertisen hos MULTIPLIERS partners kommer studenterna att lära sig att ekosystemtjänster kan konkurrera med varandra, och även om de kan balanseras kan det fortfarande finnas möjliga kompromisser.
