Pre-approved for 1 CEC under SER's CERP Program
The Ecosystem Restoration Thematic Group (ERTG) of IUCN’s Commission on Ecosystem Management (IUCN CEM) is convening a monthly webinar series, Ecosystem Restoration: Global Initiatives in Science and Practice, beginning February 15, 2019 (10:00 AM Mountain Time). We are writing to invite you to register and participate.
Overview: The objective of the webinar series is to provide a forum for IUCN and CEM members, and others in the ecological restoration community, to gain insight and knowledge about ecological restoration and to provide opportunities for networking and direct engagement.
Each month, a different speaker will give a 40-minute presentation on their work, related to one of four themes: 1) global initiatives in ecological restoration; 2) syntheses of accomplishments, challenges, and opportunities in ecological restoration within specific regions of the globe; 3) technical guidance on prioritization, implementation, and monitoring of restoration activities, and 4) identification of critical gaps and brainstorm of potential new initiatives and projects.
Webinars will be held the 3rd Friday of each month from 12 to 1 pm Eastern EST using the platform “Zoom”. The series is targeted primarily at IUCN and CEM members (others welcome to join), and quarterly for the Global Initiatives themes, we will convene jointly with an ongoing “Pulse-of-the-Planet” series conducted by NatureServe, GEO BON and EcoHealth Alliance networks initiative. A full list of topics and dates is attached.
We will have the recording of each session available after each session for those the dates and time are not ideal.
You can register once for all recurring monthly sessions. We look forward to your participation!
