Preliminary Program

Preliminary program overview

Pre-Conference Training Workshop (Sept. 15 and 16, 2018)

We are planning to host a pre-conference training workshop, aimed at early- or mid-career professionals in wildlife and conservation management. The workshop will focus on methods and tools needed for a successful integration of human dimensions, e.g. communication, education, human-wildlife conflict resolution, and stakeholder engagement. It also fosters the exchange among field practitioners and will be a good preparation for the conference, especially if you are a first-time attendee. For more information, please inquire at pathways 2018@nna.de – and stayed tuned for further information.
