Module 13: Conservation Education

Across the snow leopard range, people and snow leopards share space. A supportive constituency of communities and individuals is paramount for the conservation of the snow leopard. Environmental education is one means of building support and creating awareness amongst children, young people and adults for the long term. It is the process of creating knowledge of the environment; strengthening pro-environmental values among children; motivating young people to participate in environmental protection; and through a process of empowerment find solutions for environmental problems. It involves the continued strengthening of positive values among people towards snow leopards and the environment. Children’s environmental education is particularly important as children are the future environmental custodians and also have the capacity to influence present household pro-environmental behaviours.

While the importance of conservation education for coexistence is evident, conceptualising and implementing a conservation education module can be a lot more challenging. What are the goals of the conservation education programme? What are the most effective ways for children to learn? How can conservation education programmes be tailored to create impactful, long-term change? How can we incorporate place-based knowledge into our programmes?

In this module on conservation education these questions and more will be discussed, hosted by SLN-GSLEP and brought to you thanks to the support of other conservation education partners. Participants will be introduced to the theory and basics of conservation education, build skills so that conservation education can be made more effective, and exposed to conservation education programmes in the snow leopard landscape. Do join us for this exciting and interactive module!

This Module is offered thanks to the contributions and support of University of Vermont, Nature Classrooms, Land of the Snow Leopard Network, the Snow Leopard Conservancy , Snow Leopard Trust and GSLEP.

About the course

  • Session 1: Introduction to Conservation Education

Wednesday September 8th, 18:00-20:00 Bishkek time

This session will be led by Dr. Rachelle Gould, an Assistant Professor at the University of Vermont. Rachelle will start us off by exploring how conservation education is more than creating awareness, and more than information delivery. The session will discuss how the core goal of conservation education is to develop informed, active citizens who feel empowered to create change. Throughout the session the group will discuss considerations, ideas, and sample learning activities that can help to develop informed, active members of society.

  • Session 2: Land of the Snow Leopard Network

Wednesday September 15th, 17:00-19:30 Bishkek time 

For this Session we have the pleasure to invite the Land of Snow Leopard (LOSL) Network. LOSL is part of a groundbreaking collaboration between western and indigenous science and has two overriding goals: reviving ancient conservation practices and creating pathways for Indigenous Cultural Practitioners to be coequal partners in research and planning for the conservation of snow leopards.

The network is striving to help the GSLEP governments understand and embrace the snow leopard’s spiritual nature and fundamental place in indigenous practices as well as to share knowledge of the spiritual and cultural importance of these cats and the imperative to embrace this knowledge in securing landscapes for their preservation. LOSL received the Disney Conservation Hero Award in 2020, recognizing local citizens for their commitment to save wildlife, protect habitats, and inspire their communities to take part in conservation efforts. The Snow Leopard Conservancy facilitates Land of Snow Leopard and provides technical and fiscal support. This Session will focus on introducing the indigenous ways of learning and teaching in snow leopard landscapes, with a special focus on two of LOSL’s programs: 1. learning from elders and 2. teaching in nomadic communities.

  • Session 3 & 4: Connecting Learning to the Natural World – A Nature Classrooms Approach

Wednesdays September 22nd, 29th, 18:00-20:00 Bishkek time
In this 2 part interactive workshop, led by Vena Kapoor and Roshini Ravi from the Nature Conservation Foundation, we will discuss how we can work closely with schools, teachers and educators to develop age-appropriate and locally-culturally relevant nature learning resources that enrich and support existing school curricula for Environmental Studies. The sessions will highlight how we can provide opportunities to develop empathy, love and wonder while exploring and building active connections with the natural world.

The workshop will include discussions on concepts like shifting baseline syndrome, nature deficit disorder, demonstrations on inquiry based learning and examples of modules we have designed and created that can be weaved into textbook topics. Through a short project participants will also brainstorm, create and pilot their own nature learning resources suited to their specific teaching-learning contexts. More details about the Nature Classrooms project can be accessed here

Module 11: PARTNERS Monitoring and Evaluation 

About the module

Monitoring and Evaluation is a critical part of community conservation programs. It is necessary to identify and address any implementation challenges. It can also ensure that conservation programs are improved as required in response to changing threats and opportunities at the local level.

This module will focus on introducing participants to participatory approaches in monitoring and evaluation of community conservation programs. It will cover core terms, principles and approaches to M&E that are important foundations of conservation program planning and implementation. How can M&E be incorporated into conservation programs in a way that supports community ownership and engagement? 

We will draw on a set of principles and guidelines for community-based conservation, called the ‘PARTNERS principles’, which have been developed based on the extensive experience of snow leopard conservation practitioners. The team will showcase participatory techniques for M&E from snow leopard and wider landscapes across the world. These sessions will build on Module 3 and Module 7 offered in 2020. An optional session will include a “workshop” style approach where the team works through planning a monitoring or evaluation method for real world examples from the snow leopard range. 

This module is offered thanks to the partnership with France’s National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment and the Snow Leopard Trust.
