You net gained me - now watch me grow

02 March / 16.15 - 17.15

Biodiversity Net Gain increases the prosperity for natural systems whilst simultaneously providing an environment that enhances wellbeing, making it a key driver for new infrastructure development. We must ensure that these benefits are integrated into all elements of society. It is widely known that children with an elevated exposure to nature from a young age have better problem-solving skills. This has mobilised the Department for Education to have nature in its draft strategy for sustainability and climate action. Aiming to inspire action for nature, improve local environments and increase access to nature.   

So, how do we incorporate Biodiversity net gain into the fabric of school infrastructure and enable a physical connection with nature in both new build and retrofitting? How can technology connect the built environment to biodiversity observation? How can we create positive social outcomes and contributing towards national biological data?
