Session 1: Conservation Policy in Action

At 11am EST/ 3pm UTC on Saturday, 29 April

Featuring speakers Claudia Munoz-Colon, OceanEcho Fellow, and students from the 30×30 Illinois Conservation Task Force

Participants will learn from youth leaders from several different regions, as they share their personal experiences while working to implement a 30×30-related project. Using these case studies as examples, participants will learn how to collaborate with community members to identify and implement creative solutions to conservation issues, and how to scale up their projects, building momentum off of collective action.

With the help of an expert capacity-building organizer, participants will develop a strong conservation “why” to help refine the who, what, where, and how of their projects.
