As we live in the future of a decade ago, never before has mankind been so uncertain about the future, and at the same time, never before have we been in such a position to solve the challenges of our time. As we stand at the edge of a new world, there exists a sense of fear, anticipation and anxiety regarding the seemingly unfamiliar but not too distant future. But how do we create the world that we want, rather than a world that gets handed down to us?
As conservationists and sustainability champions, we have failed to communicate our message in an effective and compelling way. As a catalyst for change, we have to realise that sustainability is not about saving the environment, but rather about saving ourselves who just so happens to rely upon the environment for our very existence. Without that link between the environment and society, our message will fail, and our impact will be lost.
This Conservation Leadership workshop focuses upon why it is important to get our message out there to the world, so much so that if we do not get our message out to the world, we are doing the world a disservice! Why we all need to step up to the challenge of leading conservation efforts and focus upon effecting change. This can only be done by honing our message and improving communication skills.
