Land for Community Led Wetland Conservation

Category: Workshop

About this event

  • 5 hours 30 minutes

The workshop will explore successes and barriers to accessing land for community wetland conservation and stewardship projects. It will hear from members of the Community Wetlands Forum who own sites, have successfully negotiated leases with landowners, and others who have successful collaborative arrangements with local farmers and landowners. It will also hear from those who have faced challenges and barriers when seeking to purchase, or acquire access to sites to further conservation objectives.

As well as members of the CWF, the workshop will hear the perspectives of academics, NGOs and semi-states working in the space. We will hear the views and experiences of all in attendance via Q&A sessions and small group discussions.

The aim will be to collectively and collaboratively identify and address challenges and opportunities for a community focused model of land access and stewardship for wetland conservation.

There will be a light lunch provided. After the workshop, we will be guided on a biodiverstiy walk of Lough Muckno park by local communtiy group, Friends of Lough Muckno.
