People protect what they love


IMCC4 Workshop in Focus

Engaging stakeholders in marine conservation using the interdisciplinary science of collaborative learning and mental models taps the power of place to motivate stewardship. Learning how to adapt this approach to your conservation work will be the subject of an all day workshop on July 29th at IMCC2016. High impact communications about the value of ecosystem services can motivate people to act in ways that protect and sustain the services they care about. This workshop provides practical and effective techniques easy to use in your work to improve ecosystem services communication and stakeholder engagement.
