NBS EduWORLD Baseline Assessment Template

The baseline assessment template provides guidance to the Tier-2 partners, to explore their current NbS education landscape. The template has been developed keeping in mind that there might be many interlinkages and complex connections among the set cornerstones. However, to get a comprehensive picture, almost all cornerstones have a crucial role in determining the structure of the NbS education landscape in terms of policies, finance, governance, and businesses, etc. This will be the basis for carrying out further work with the Tier-2 partners to support them in identifying, prioritising, and implementing their NbS education initiatives.

NBS EduWORLD Knowledge Stream: Guidelines on Implementation of Nature-Based Solutions Activities in Education for Starters

The guidelines have been designed to address the requirements of educators with little to no prior knowledge of nature-based solutions (NBS). They provide a step-by-step framework for understanding, implementing, and integrating NBS concepts into different education settings, covering formal, non-formal and even informal education. The guidelines incorporate hands-on activities, recommendations, and practical examples to facilitate educators in effectively conveying NBS-related content to their students. By considering the needs and limitations of the Knowledge Stream, the guidelines aim to build a solid foundation of NBS knowledge among educators and empower them to unlock the potential of NBS education.

NBS EduWORLD Network Stream: Scenarios of Plausible Futures for NBS in Education

This document describes and analyses the different pathways for the transformation of the schools into NatureBased Solutions (NBS) Living Labs (LLs) through the Whole School Approach (WSA), providing a structured set of Scenarios of Plausible Futures for Nature-Based Solutions in Education that can act as a reference point for the project’s implementation with the large users’ communities. The scenarios record and highlight key drivers, uncertainties, baselines, constraints, and opportunities for nurturing NBS in education. They are not predictions but serve as a perspective to provoke 'what if' discussions, develop roadmaps, and delineate educational pathways. The overarching objective is to enhance our collective understanding of NBS in education and its future, supporting the vision of schools as NBS Living Labs and underlining the actions needed towards that vision.

NBS EduWORLD State of the Art Report

This report aims to provide an overview and detailed analysis of the state of the art in nature-based solutions (NBS) education across the European region and at different education levels. Based on desk research and interviews, it highlights the gaps and opportunities in NBS education. It finds that NBS is a great practical tool and opportunity for teaching learning for sustainability and sustainability competences, but that NBS often is not included in the Learning for Sustainability (LfS) agenda explicitly and particularly at the level of vocational education and training, and in coastal and rural communities. The current State of the Art report highlights good practice examples across Europe that primarily focus on urban regeneration and green space management, and not a larger diversity of NBS.
