Week 2 SDWC check-in 🦈
Checking in. How are you all?
How are you getting on with this week's videos? I look forward to seeing your examples on here for the Engaging stakeholders presentation. Remember, it doesn't have to be perfect, we are just playing around with the process at this stage and practising. If you only have one stakeholder in your assessment then that is fine.
CREATING YOUR OWN STRATEGIES
In week 3 you will begin to create your own conservation strategies, I’ll be asking you next week for ideas about what you want to focus them on, but it maybe worth having a think about options now. If you don’t have anything in mind, don’t worry, it works well if not everyone has an idea, as then we can team you up with others who do have a specific idea. I’ll explain all in an update soon.
Below is the group agreement, this is the combined list of things both live sessions came up with the make the training run smoother and to help us all get the most out of it. We are of course all adults here, so no one is going to make you stick to it, but I think there are some lovely things on there that are worth noting.
LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE
One of my favourite principles is Listen to the people. This principle links in with the exercise we did in the live session in week 1 where we all had to say a bad behaviour we do and others had to guess why we did that bad behaviour. This exercise is fun because sometimes it really isn't obvious why people do that bad behaviour. So really shows the importance of listening to people and asking them why they do that certain behaviour when we are creating a conservation strategy.
Which of the below is your favourite method for applying the listen to the people principle? Please add others and share tips below.
