Student Conference on Conservation Science – Bengaluru-2011 Workshop
There were 7-9 workshops, conducted in parallel batches in the afternoons. The goal of the workshops is capacity-building in terms of training in basic conservation and research skills as well as introductions to new ideas, concepts and techniques in conservation science.
A session similar to the “Who’s Who in Conservation” session at Cambridge was arranged. For this, academic departments, NGOs and government departments working in the field of conservation were invited to bring posters and other material describing their work and possible employment opportunities. Representatives from participating organisations were present to interact with student participants. In addition, we had round-table discussions on topics like conservation in industry, conservation science and conservation practice, conservation and livelihoods, and so on.Programme
