Fenner particiants ran a pre-congress course at the International Congress of Conservation Biology in Cartagena (Colombia).
With participants from Australia, UK and the USA, Claudia Munera and Federico Davila (ANU), and Oscar Guevara (WWF Colombia) ran the pre-congress course focused on understanding what we can do now to reshape our social, political and practical abilities to anticipate possible changes and respond to actual changes as they happen. The course goal was to identify and present new ways of thinking about the future of conservation under situations of uncertainty.
In the course we explored strategies for transition from our traditional way of work in conservation, to identify how we will need to do conservation in the future. Participants were able to implement ideas of transition to climate changed futures through the management planning, actions, and decisions they are facing now in their work.
