Global Diversity Foundation
Paul is a Trustee and Board member of the Global Diversity Foundation (GDF) which promotes the richness of local cultures and their environments around the world.
We are concerned about the future of the biodiversity that people tend, the languages they speak and the ways they interact with their cultural landscapes.
We believe that globalization can go hand-in-hand with diversity. But it requires education, research and sheer hard work in the form of long-term, community-based projects.
We work with local people to help them adapt to the world's changing conditions. Our initiatives, conducted in partnership with local and international institutions, take three main forms:
- applied research on diverse aspects of biocultural diversity at selected field sites.
- training and education, from community workshops to university courses.
- field projects that improve the health, education and rights of communities under threat from the globalized economy.
