Cooperation partner

In September 2012, the project “Expert Workshop Nature Awareness” started. The aim of the project is a comprehensive scientific reflection of the concepts and results of the two nature awareness studies conducted so far by BMU and BfN and the development of recommendations for their further development.

The focus of the project is a two-day expert workshop that took place on February 18 and 19, 2013. The institute cooperates with Dr. Jens Jetzkowitz (University of Halle-Wittenberg) within the project. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN).
