Investing in Nature - Japan
The Investing in Nature - Japan programme aimed to raise the awareness of Japanese gardens in relation to the work of BGCI and the role that botanic gardens play in plant conservation at an international, regional and national level.
The Investing in Nature, funded by the HSBC Group, began in Japan in January 2004. It has helped BGCI work with botanic gardens in Japan to promote their work to various parties, ranging from governments and industries to the general public, within Japan and around the world. It has also assisted and encouraged the further involvement of these parties in plant conservation, environmental education, and sustainable development.
Through various funding projects, BGCI has assisted in raising the national appreciation of the importance of Japanese botanic gardens.
