The Social Science Working Group

The Social Science Working Group (SSWG) of the Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) is a global community of conservation scientists and practitioners. The SSWG was established in 2003, and is deeply committed to strengthening conservation social science and its application to conservation practice around the globe. SSWG is administered by a Board of Directors and various Board Committees. SSWG catalyzes forums and mechanisms for information exchange, promotes dialogue and debate, shares career opportunities and builds social science capacity among conservation practitioners.

You can review the current SSWG Strategic Plan, the revised 2016 Bylaws and Annual Report.

We encourage you to read our Letter to the Community regarding SSWG's support of diversity, inclusion, justice, and equity efforts.
