Botanic Gardens Conservation International
BGCI provides a global voice for all botanic gardens, championing and celebrating their inspiring work. We are the world's largest plant conservation network, open to all. Join us in helping to save the world's threatened plants.

Public Engagement

BGCI has an extensive Public Engagement programme that provides a wide range of tools and resources to support and promote the education work of botanic gardens around the world.

Through a recent European project, we provided teacher training in 11 countries, building capacity to deliver inquiry-based science education. 

Our present focus is on increasing the social relevance of botanic gardens, helping them to work with their local communities on common issues of social and environmental importance.

BGCI's education team produces a biannual journal 'Roots' and organises regular training courses and conferences.
