The #NatureForAll Discovery Zone is a place where people can find ways to connect with or experience nature, whether its from their homes, on the balconies, in their backyard, in urban parks, in protected areas or virtually.
It offers a searchable database of links to resources and materials from #NatureForAll partners as well as members of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). These resources come in multiple languages and formats, such as games, curriculums, lesson plans, virtual tours and videos.
In addition, a calendar of events provides opportunities to connect and learn virtually or find out about local, regional, national and even international events coming up, all aimed at connecting with, learning about and experiencing nature.
There is also a free, always open chat room available for partners to organize meetings. #NatureForAll partners can also access two Webex rooms to host virtual conferences and calls with up to 100 people. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
What is #NatureForAll?
#NatureForAll is a global movement made up of more than 400 partners whose mission is to inspire love of nature. At its core is a very simple idea: the more people experience and share their love of nature, the more support and action there will be for its conservation. The growing knowledge base that links connecting with and caring for nature is an important part of #NatureForAll. For more information, visit www.natureforall.global
How do I use the resource database?
Content in the database can be searched through 7 different attributes: type of resource, partner name, focus area, audience, the UN Sustainable Development Goals, country and language.
