Training resources

Training resourcesThe We Value Nature campaign has analysed the latest Natural Capital thinking and research in behavioural and organisational change to help individuals and organisations take the next steps on their natural capital journeys. Our research has shaped our training events and we want to share the resources we've developed.

The training programme is split into a series of modules which we'll be releasing over the coming months, each module can be delivered over one hour, two hours, half a day or a full day.

We want you to use and adapt these ready-made materials in your training, seminars, workshops or conferences. Help us spread the word about the importance of integrating nature in business decision-making and help make valuing nature the new normal for business.

We would love to hear your feedback on the material as well as how you have made use of it. Please get in touch at: Training@wevaluenature.eu or submit your resources to the We Value Nature media library
