Ecopsychology Camp: Cultivating Ecological and Psychological Resiliency

Ecopsychology is a transdisciplinary field of inquiry predicated on a belief that humanity is a part of nature. It bridges the sciences and humanities in order to stimulate insight, creativity and imagination; foster a mature, empathic and ethical awareness; utilize ecological, biological and psychological principles essential to sustainability; and recognizes that all of life's systems: personal, social, ecological, economic, and mechanistic are interdependent and linked through multiple synergistic relationships.

Ecopsychology Camp will explore the human ecosystem through five main ecological principles that will provide images, metaphors and ideas for how we can address plaguing issues in culture and conservation with more innovative, creative and ecosystemic solutions.

Operationalising Ecosystem Based Disaster Risk Reduction at national and sub-national levels

The conservation community makes significant contributions to disaster risk reduction (DRR) and livelihood security efforts, globally. However, such contributions are not widely communicated, recognised and invested in (especially by key humanitarian aid donors). The training course demonstrates the critical links between ecosystem management, DRR and climate change adaptation for policy makers, practitioners, donors and scientists. It also equips participants with concrete ecosystem management tools that can catalyse ecosystem based DRR.

En esta lógica las políticas y la gobernanza de la conservación de la biodiversidad deben reconocer efectivamente a estos actores y sus niveles de dependencia, pero además de la gran relevancia que tienen en estas condiciones las mujeres.

Understanding and Implementing the IUCN Protected Area Management Categories
