Education and Training in Biodiversity

“Education is critical for promoting sustainable development and improving the capacity of the people to address environment and development issues…. Both formal and non-formal education are indispensable to changing people's attitude so that they have the capacity to assess and address their sustainable development concerns. It is critical for achieving environmental and ethical awareness, values and attitudes, skills and behaviour consistent with sustainable development and for effective public participation in decision making”, Agenda 21, Chapter 36, UNCED 1992.
