Subject: Webinar announcement: Introduction to Conservation Conflict Transformation
Turning Conflict into an Opportunity
Do you have a complex conservation challenge? Is social conflict complicating or impeding your efforts to create positive change or achieve conservation goals? Social conflicts around conservation issues can erode efforts to protect wildlife and secure communities’ way of life. Destructive conflicts often impede the development of shared solutions and progress among communities, conservationists, industry, and governments.
In the midst of a pandemic, the world is experiencing collective stress and anxiety that deepens and entrenches social conflicts. We at CPeace, seek to support you as you navigate the new world order, and prepare you to constructively engage in conflict on the other side of this pandemic.
In this 2-hour online session, Co-founder and Executive Director, Francine Madden of the Center for Conservation Peacebuilding (CPeace) will share an orientation to CCT. This session will provide an introduction for those new to CCT, as well as a refresher to those who have participated in CPeace's past programs. The session will introduce analytical approaches to understand the intensity and depth of social conflict at multiple scales and explore with the participants how these conflicts impact shared problem-solving around natural resource management, as well as other social and environmental issues. During the session, participants will learn how CCT differs from traditional approaches to community engagement and conflict resolution while exploring cases of how CCT transforms conflict so both people and wildlife thrive. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions and draw from their own experiences as they engage in the models and framework.
