Global Nature – protecting the earth’s riches

Objective and activities

'Global Nature' is a series of TV reports that gives a vivid insight into exemplary activities in the field of conserving biological diversity in emerging and developing countries. The reporting focuses on projects supported by the International Climate Initiative. Schools and educational institutions around the world can use DVDs containing these reports as learning materials. The reports can be accessed at any time on a multimedia platform in three languages along with background articles, photo galleries, audio-visual shows and information on key thematic areas. This allows the reports to reach diverse social groups and disseminators, raising awareness about the importance of biological diversity and providing information about practical approaches to its conservation.
