Moving from stakeholder to Ecosystem actor

Moving from stakeholder to Ecosystem actor

Hi Everyone!  I thought I would share this resource that was just shared with me by a friend/colleague.  The focus is on evaluation and not specifically conservation, but it is more about the language used moving forward and helping us move away from language/terms rooted in colonialism.   I have been a part of discussions with this community here, so I wanted to make sure we all had access to this.   I hope it is useful!

When we were creating our stakeholder engagement manual we also tried to find alternative terms because of the issue with the term stakeholder - but we are yet to find one that is satisfactory. Another group used the term "interested parties" but think it will take a long time to take hold. I found the term "ecosystem actors" a bit jargony/academic. But what do you think?

Thanks very much for sharing Molly, great to see this discussion is wider than just the conservation community.
