This online event was the next in a series hosted by the Conservation Finance Forum (with assistance from the Government Innovators Network), highlighting several topics of keen interest to the U.S. and international conservation communities.
This discussion featured four student participants who had recently returned from the conference on Conservation Capital in the Americas, held in January 2009 in Valdivia, Chile. These young people were among the thirty students who attended the conference from North, Central and South America.
The thirty students who attended the conference—comprising about one-fourth of the participants, who came from the public, private, nonprofit and academic sectors—represented 17 diverse academic institutions, including Harvard, Yale, Oxford, Duke, the University of Montana, Colby College in Maine, the Universidad Austral de Chile, the Unversidad Pacifico in Peru, and the Univesidad del Valle in Colombia.
The student guests on this broadcast, representing both undergraduate and graduate institutions in the United States, considered the significance of the meeting in Valdivia, and the potential of the innovations discussed there to have a lasting impact on the practice of land and biodiversity conservation across the Western Hemisphere.
