Have your say in the future of Communities in Nature
After its five years of operation, in partnership with BGCI, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation has commissioned an independent review of Communities in Nature in order to learn from what has been achieved so far and identify priorities for its future development.
Understanding the views of botanic gardens across the world is a key part of the review process. Therefore, the survey asks you to reflect on your own experience of ‘Communities in Nature’ or similar community engagement initiatives and forward to future possibilities.

BGCI centred its Communities in Nature programme around the ‘social role’ of botanic gardens to address the needs of communities and plant conservation in a mutually beneficial approach. To achieve this BGCI has commissioned new research, developed pilot projects with botanic gardens, produced a range of materials to support the work, and reflected on its own organizational priorities and approach.
