Nature Centres in Belgium


Nature centres play an important role in raising awareness and in the education of the general public in the fields of nature protection and biodiversity conservation. As a consequence these centres are particularly important for the implementation of article 13 of the Convention on Biological Diversity, especially within the context of its first paragraph:

Art. 13 - Public Education and Awareness
'The Contracting Parties shall:
(a) Promote and encourage understanding of the importance of, and the measures required for, the conservation of biological diversity, as well as its propagation through media, and the inclusion of these topics in educational programmes;'.
