The Biocultural Diversity Programme works strategically with our sister initiative: Flourishing Diversity. Biodiversity, culture and language are deeply intertwined. If we value biodiversity, and strive to protect and restore it, we must also consider our cultural and linguistic relationship with nature.
Flourishing Diversity explores how we can create space to reimagine our culture and convene conversation around our relationship to nature and the diversity which brings it to life.
It is a blossoming cultural ecosystem of people, communities, organisations and ideas; a forum for the voices, experience and skills of Indigenous Peoples and local communities (including elders, leaders, men, women and youth), for conservation biologists, farmers, human rights activists, artists, spiritual leaders, local and international NGOs, youth movements and social enterprises to resist monoculture and promote diversity in all spaces.
