Conservation Leadership Program in Monterey
- Forwarded from Scott...
The Monterey Institute of International Studies is pleased to present
the new two week Conservation Leadership Program (CLP) certificate
course, from May 29th through June 8th, 2007. Its innovative
curriculum delivers the necessary skills for current and future
environmental leaders to manage successful conservation projects with
local and global organizations.
The two weeks will be divided into 10 key skill areas to be taught by
Monterey Institute Professor Jeffrey Langholz, and other qualified
professionals in the field from such organizations as Foundations of
Success, Elkhorn Slough Foundation, Monterey Bay Sanctuary National
Marine Sanctuary, and The Big Sur Land Trust. The program will
concentrate on the following leadership skills in conservation
project design and implementation:
• Understanding the Conservation Project Cycle
• Writing Meaningful Mission Statements
• Using Comprehensive Site Assessment Tools
• Creating Conservation Management Plans
• Project Monitoring and Evaluation
• Building Project Teams and Boards
• Leadership Ethics
• Financial Management for Conservation Leaders
• Effective Outreach and Media Relations
• Conflict Resolution
A “Meet the leaders” session will convene throughout the course,
allowing students contact time with local conservation leaders, to
ask questions about the material, broaden their professional
networks, and give the course an applicable context.
Located in historic downtown Monterey, just blocks from Fisherman’s
Wharf, the Monterey Institute campus provides access to a wide range
of activities. Participants take advantage of their time in beautiful
Monterey with weekend hikes in Big Sur, visits to Carmel, and group
outings in the evenings.
The course will meet daily 9am-4pm, from May 28 to June 8 on the
Monterey Institute of International Studies campus. The course fee is
$1,750 and applications are due April 15, 2007.
