Subject: Conservation Conflict Transformation Workshops
Do you have a complex conservation challenge? Is social conflict complicating or impeding your efforts to create positive change or achieve conservation goals? CPeace (formerly the Human-Wildlife Conflict Collaboration) offers capacity-building workshops at both ‘fundamentals’ and ‘advanced’ levels for individuals and teams interested in transforming conflict to create enduring solutions for people and wildlife. (The advanced workshop is for participants who have taken a fundamentals-level workshop with CPeace/HWCC already.) CPeace currently has two capacity-building workshops on Conservation Conflict Transformation scheduled for 2019 (with more to come!):
- Advanced Application of Conservation Conflict Transformation - 11-15 March 2019, Washington, D.C., USA
- Fundamentals of Conservation Conflict Transformation - 29 April-3 May 2019, Estes Park, CO, USA
Around the world, conservation conflicts-- including “human-wildlife conflicts”-- are detrimental to livelihoods, community ways of life, and conservation efforts alike. (Often, these are conflicts between people about wildlife.) Social conflicts around conservation issues can erode efforts to protect species and promote shared wins between communities, conservationists, and governments. To understand and address these issues, CPeace pioneered the use of Conservation Conflict Transformation, a positive process by which complex, multilayered conflicts are transformed into opportunities to both engage in the presenting problem and meet deeper needs.
Join us for a collaborative-learning workshop to explore how CCT is applicable to your conservation challenge and why addressing the deep-rooted, underlying issues of social conflicts around wildlife and conservation issues may be critical to creating a path toward lasting solutions!
