Subject: New Online Certificate in Sustainable Forest Management April 15 Application Deadline
On March 1, 2019 the UN General Assembly declared 2021- 2030 as the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. Plans to massively scale up restoration of degraded ecosystems are underway. Yet, success relies on knowledgeable and skilled professionals.
To address this issue, the Environmental Leadership & Training Initiative (ELTI) is proud to announce the launch of a new online certificate program, in collaboration with the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies entitled: Tropical Forest Landscapes: Conservation, Restoration and Sustainable Use.
A remote online program with a commitment of five hours per week, the program begins this June and consists of four eight-week online courses, a capstone project and an optional field course in Latin America or Asia. This program is designed for professionals seeking guidance and knowledge about how to address the complex social, ecological and funding aspects of managing tropical forest landscapes.
Participants will learn from a diverse team of Yale faculty members, ELTI team members and a network of international partners. The courses are as follows:
Fundamentals: Ecological and social concepts
People: Community and institutional engagement
Strategies: Implementing and monitoring techniques
Funding: Financial concepts and tools
Capstone: Designing a conservation or restoration project
The program will run from June 2019 - May 2020. Applications close April 15, 2019. Join us for our next webinar on March 28, 2019 (https://bit.ly/2EEfT9I). Apply to the program here (https://bit.ly/2HJUIpY). More questions? Contact us at email@example.com.
