Do you have a complex conservation challenge? Is social conflict complicating or impeding your efforts to create positive change or achieve conservation goals? To understand and address these issues, the Center for Conservation Peacebuilding (CPeace) pioneered the use of Conservation Conflict Transformation (CCT), a positive process by which complex, multilayered conflicts are transformed into opportunities to both engage in the presenting problem and meet deeper needs. Join us for a collaborative-learning workshop to explore how CCT is applicable to your conservation challenge and why addressing the deep-rooted, underlying issues of social conflicts around wildlife and conservation issues may be critical to creating a path toward lasting solutions!

The workshop takes place October 5-9, 2020 at the Festival Center, 1640 Columbia Rd NW, Washington, DC.

Registration and details are available here.
