Part One - People, the other half of conservation: Applying a social-ecological systems approach
Time & Location
About the Event
By adopting a holistic social-ecological approach to nature conservation, which considers people to be an inevitable part of the landscape, conservationists are able to have realistic conservation goals and to create opportunities for people to be part of nature conservation’s solution, rather than being deemed the problem.
This course is divided into two parts. Part one will run from 10:30am - 12:30pm on May 6th 2021 and will cover:
1. An introduction to a social-ecological approach for nature conservation
2. Defining your system boundary
3. Identifying all elements of your system
4. Understanding the connections and influences between those elements
Part Two will run from 10:30am - 12:30pm on May 20th 2021 and will cover:
1. Quick revision of part one and oppportunity for discussions and questions
2. Creating rich pictures and systems maps for your system
3. Creating a systems team
4. Action points for you to take away and implement a social-ecological systems approach
The sessions will include a presentation, discussions, break out rooms to work up scenarios for your site and opportuities for questions.
You will need to attend both sessions, Part one and Part two, to complete the process of intergrating a social-ecological systems approach.
By purchasing your ticket for part one, you will automotically be booked onto part two. You will be sent a meeting link for Part two nearer the time.
