Course Description

The protection of biodiversity is a global challenge, and the EU aims to lead the way in reversing its loss through its 2030 Biodiversity Strategy. Businesses play a crucial role in developing a model that safeguards and regenerates biodiversity and the ecosystem services they provide. The Seasonal School “Biodiversity and Business: from Research to Impact” is dedicated to tackling the global challenge of biodiversity protection and promoting a regenerative economic development model. The objectives of the Seasonal School are as follows: (1) examine and promote a development model capable of protecting and regenerating biodiversity and the services that ecosystems provide, from a perspective of regenerative economic development; (2) provide participants with stimuli and tools to understand and measure the impact of business on biodiversity, evaluate risks and opportunities; and (3) foster technological and organizational innovation, encouraging the development of new technological and organizational solutions that foster a regenerative economy that protects natural capital. The Seasonal School is affiliated with the National Biodiversity Future Center (NBFC), an Italian project funded by the European Union’s NextGenerationEU initiative. The NBFC, approved by the Italian Ministry of University and Research, involves 48 partners and over 1,300 researchers focused on biodiversity.
