Education e-update: New resource for botanic garden educators

23 May 2007

BGCI has launched the Education E-update, a handy bite-sized review of the latest in botanic garden education from around the world, fresh to your inbox every month.

Due to popular demand, the original email newsletter for plant-based educators in the United States, has gone international. BGCI’s survey of educators at the 2006 6th International Congress of Education in Botanic Gardens, found educators were keen to see the creation of an emailed newsletter to stay up-to-date with news, views, case studies, resource ideas and reviews.   Education E-update aims to provide users with just that.

Each month’s issue will include news updates from BGCI and botanic gardens around the world; links to education resources and materials you can use in your programmes; profiles of plant-based conservation educators and programmes; and ideas and feedback from our readers.

To make sure a copy gets to your inbox, sign up to Education e-update. For a taster, have a look at May's issue.

We hope you will enjoy this new education resource from BGCI and welcome your contributions for future issues. If you have anything to share – news about programmes, meetings, new resources that you have found or produced, ideas, suggestions or comments, do get in touch.  Send us an email,
