  14. 14. 14 designing a coherent and compelling offer principles for a State of nature 2.0 proposition 1. Joined up approach 2. Building towards an ambitious vision 3. Open to multiple audiences 4. Many ways to participate - for individuals + orgs 5. Transforming partnership into a collaboration 6. Sharing data, learning and knowledge openly 7. Building collective intelligence around the topic
