For the Love of Nature: Solutions to Restoring Biodiversity is volume four in the Centre for Civic Governance’s Going for Green Leadership series. With this handbook we’ve invited authors Briony Penn and Robin J. Hood to share their remarkable stories of leadership in biodiversity.

Championing biodiversity is not an easy task. The pressures of urbanization have transformed our world to such a degree that we seldom find the time or place to deepen our connection to the natural world. At the Centre for Civic Governance, we believe that municipalities can play an essential leadership role in restoring our bond with nature and the preservation of biodiversity.

In this book you will find inspiration, legislative tools and promising practices for creating a legacy of biodiversity for your community. We hope you will accept the challenge.
