As part of the LIFE e-Natura2000.edu project (LIFEedu for short), a new practical course based on a blended learning approach will be available for practitioners in Spain. The course is designed for a core group of 25 selected participants who have responsibilities on Natura 2000 management. The course is led by Fungobe – EUROPARC Spain.
Building alliances for Natura 2000: tools for effective communication, participation and governance
Next 16th March, the course Building alliances for Natura 2000: tools for effective communication, participation and governance will start.
During 7 weeks, 25 Natura 2000 managers from all over Spain -including managers of private lands- will discuss and analyse key aspects of stakeholder involvement and good governance in the context of Natura 2000 management.
Course contents will include practical and theoretical background on communication and participation in protected areas, and will provide with different tools for stakeholder engagement. The course will draw on the experiences of the participants, who will present and analyse different case studies. Furthermore, each week, participants will practice different personal communication skills, such as presentations, negotiation, group facilitation and conflict resolution.
The course, designed and organised by FUNGOBE as part of the LIFE e-natura2000.edu project has the main objective of raising awareness among Natura 2000 managers of the importance of developing participatory approaches and building relations with the local communities.
