Action for Conservation Workshop Leaders

This week I’m really pleased to be sharing an opportunity to work with Action for Conservation, a dynamic UK charity whose exciting approach to conservation I really support.

About Action for Conservation

Action for Conservation are on a mission to help create the next generation of nature conservationists, and they have a lot in common with my own little project, Discover Conservation.

They are looking for young conservationists, in their 20s and 30s who are either working in conservation in the UK or abroad or studying for an MSc or PhD that has a significant field work dimension, to lead their school workshops across the UK.

They are asking for you to be available for two workshop days and one training day between February and July 2015. They offer workshop delivery training and considerable outreach experience and the chance to promote your own and your organisation’s/institutions work and will cover all travel expenses.

They are very flexible, and just want lots of inspiring young conservationists visiting as many schools as possible so if you feel you might not be able to commit to three full days, you are based outside the UK and only occasionally here or you are worried you might not meet the criteria, then please do still get in touch with them!

I think getting into schools and talking to teenagers about conservation (especially exciting fieldwork) is just about one of the best things you can do with your free time. Please do share this with anyone you think might be interested, and take a look at the video below.
