Gain a better understanding of Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG). Join us as we explore what to expect and how to interpret the Metric when reviewing Biodiversity Net Gain.

This four-week course equips participants with the skills required to understand the principles of BNG and have an awareness of what goes into the Metric. You will learn valuable hands-on experience inputting data into the Metric, interpreting its outcomes, understanding its limitations, and discussing real-life case studies. Participants will be given an overview of BNG legislation, its purpose, and what to expect during a BNG project. This course is ideal for those who review BNG reports and the Metric such as Planners, Developers and Landscape Architects.
