Client need

We Value Nature, an EU Horizon campaign supporting businesses and the natural capital community to make valuing nature the new normal for businesses across Europe, wanted to develop a one, two and three-hour virtual training module on scoping and conducting a natural capital assessment. The target audience were businesses with an introductory understanding of natural capital. The module aimed to help companies develop an understanding of the steps involved in carrying out a natural capital assessments and develop a list of practical tools to take forward.

Developing a training course that could be fully delivered virtually with a mix of context and exercises
Including a series of case study exercises that could be undertaken by groups during the course

Delivering two live versions of the training during the WBCSD virtual liaison delegate meeting in 2020.

The results

A training deck that includes options for one, two and three-hour options for the module

Producing accompanying facilitators notes, participant agenda and speaker notes

The development of a course that received positive feedback from course attendees including:
"This is a relatively new concept and it provided an excellent overview of the issues", "Thought that the mentimeter, breakout rooms and use of chatbox worked very well."

What happened next
