Description

Webinar on 24th September 1800-1900 CEST

Research scientists can contribute in many different ways as collaborative partners in ecological restoration. In such collaboration, it is important to recognise that scientists, partners, and other stakeholders hold different knowledge, values, and priorities regarding the ecological and social context surrounding restoration.

To ensure that contributions from scientific research are both relevant and respectful toward other partners, we need to be mindful of how the authority of science is wielded when processes for engagement are chosen, as well as during the engagement activities themselves. But how can scientists cultivate these skills and learn about effective modes of transdisciplinary engagement, when it is still rarely covered in academic training?

Join the Society for Ecological Restoration in the webinar Positioning scientists as relevant and respectful partners in restoration. On 24th September 1800-1900 CEST, You’ll join Dr. Elizabeth King and learn about an ongoing collaboration between a team of scientists and the efforts to synthesize practices and resources into open-access training.
