The meaning we assign to the world around us influences the way we behave and treat things. Therefore, it is of great importance to better understand how society views and understands fundamental challenges of our time, such as biodiversity loss. This knowledge will help to make social, political, or economic interventions more effective in preserving and enhancing biodiversity and also help communicate adequately about the issue of biodiversity loss.

The report analyses the biodiversity discourse reviewing the existing academic literature on biodiversity discourses and identify the main discourses and implied values.
