In Conversation Series: Conservation’s Leading Edges

This 4-part series gathers practitioners and scholars to discuss practical and philosophical innovations in community-based conservation. The title of the series draws on the ecological principle whereby habitat ‘edges’ are understood as spaces of significant potential where biodiversity is richer and the ecological web is more complex than at the core, and where evolutionary processes are accelerated. Analogously, community-based conservation, which is located at the dynamic edges of mainstream conservation, is where journeys towards justice begin, practical innovations are explored and radical shifts in perspective are boldly actualised.

Sharing inspirational case studies and first-hand, lived experiences in the field, the workshops give voice to grassroots experiences and ground-breaking learning, highlighting the importance of watching what is happening at the ‘edges’ to locate new approaches to systemic problems.
