Botanic Gardens Conservation International (BGCI) and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew offer a five-week course in botanic garden education. The course will run from 14th March - 15th April 2011.  There are a limited number of scholarships available.  Priority will be given to applicants from Commonwealth Countries.

For more information on the course leaflet.

 

Course Rationale


Botanic Gardens, with their amazing varieties and numbers of plants, are superb centres for environmental education. The millions of people that visit botanic gardens each year provide a unique opportunity for gardens to influence public attitudes towards plant conservation and the environment.

As concern grows for the detrimental effects that human activity is having on the environment, the need for botanic gardens to become more involved in education has never been so critical.

To run environmental education programmes and to work towards the implementation of Target 14 of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC), Botanic Gardens Conservation International and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (RBG Kew) have developed an international diploma course in education for botanic garden staff. The aim of the course is to equip participants with the necessary education skills and strategies to communicate effectively to their varied audiences.

The emphasis of the course is on interactive learning and the application of skills to the participants’ working context.

The course programme includes input from guest speakers and visits to museums and gardens running educational programmes. Participants will be given plenty of opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with each other.
