Developing Action Competence for Insect Preservation

Project description

Taking action for insects: People engagement for insect protection

The decline of insects represents a growing challenge for our ecosystem. Consequently, insect preservation methods are urgently needed. The EU-funded DACIP project will develop the innovative theoretical framework – action competence for insect preservation (ACIP) – and rely on it to develop novel qualitative and quantitative research tools to investigate citizens’ abilities in insect preservation and raise their ACIP. The interventions to raise citizens’ ACIP will include wildlife gardening and citizen science as central elements. The project will implement and assess these interventions at compulsory schools in Karlstad to achieve a broad educational impact on young citizens and their abilities to preserve insects.
