Students in visual communication at Beckman’s College of Design interpret the Beijer Institute's research on ecosystem services and their crucial role for sustainable social development.
Nature's diversity of ecosystems and organisms is a necessity for our well-being, both at an individual and at a global level. The concept of ecosystem services includes all the positive things that nature provides us with and makes it clear that these services cannot be taken for granted.
The Beijer Institute's research shows, among other things, why green areas, trees and wetlands are cost-effective investments in sustainable urban development, but also what happens if these are neglected.
The Beijer Institute at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences is one of the institutions that Svenskt Tenn helps to finance through The Beijer Foundation.
