This FIBS Impact training
- Provides NGOs, associations and civic organizations with the necessary understanding, knowledge and tools on natural capital practices to train businesses to start applying natural capital thinking and approaches in business decision-making processes
- Gives you an opportunity to get to know FIBS’ other organization members and broaden your network
All businesses depend and impact on natural capital. Through understanding and considering the risks and opportunities created by nature, businesses can make better decisions that benefit themselves, society and the planet as a whole.
We Value Nature’s “train the trainer” session equips business associations and natural capital advocates with skills, knowledge and resources to teach their members and colleagues about natural capital and how to integrate natural capital into business decision making. The training session will involve a deeper dive into the We Value Nature’s business training as the most effective training activities and messages are shared.
This event will also work as a platform to explore possible cooperation opportunities around natural capital – it might lead to regular meetings, a working group or other cooperation.
- Specifically to NGOs, associations and civic organizations focusing on sustainability, but who are just starting with, or already have a basic understanding, of the theme.
- The training has a limited number of seats, maximum of 2 persons per organization.
