In June 2016 a Masterclass for Biodiversity is held in Tilburg and Nijmegen. In many municipalities in the Netherlands biodiversity policy is still in its infancy when it comes to the municipal level. Many municipalities tend to follow traditional green policy and are not always aware of their role and responsibility for biodiversity.

With the new Law on Nature Protection (‘Wet Natuurbescherming’ ) to be introduced in 2017 municipalities and provinces are expected to ensure that they can effectively protect and expand biodiversity.

Questions addressed are:
– What impact has the ‘Wet Natuurbescherming’ of your organization?
– How do you meet the requirements of tis Nature Protection Law?
– What role can expect from the national government?
– What steps can be taken to increase biodiversity in your municipality?
– Which green is capable?
– How do you measure biodiversity in your municipality?

The Master Class costs 299 euro and takes place on Tuesday afternoon, June 2 in Tilburg and on Tuesday afternoon, June 16 in Helicon Nijmegen. Read more on the programme and register.
