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. Since the SSWG was established in 2003, we have been 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. Learn more about us.

Please read our Letter to the Community regarding SSWG's stance on justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) - we also welcome your ideas and engagement going forward.
