BUILDING A NEW GENERATION OF

YOUNG CONSERVATION LEADERS

Our Youth Conservation Leadership Program is a 20 day workshop designed to improve skills and capacities of a new generation of young conservation leaders in Cambodia. Applicants will be selected from local conservation organizations, student groups and environmental initiatives in Cambodia. Training will provide participants with intensive training sessions in many topics to build real-world practical skills as environmental leaders, educators, science communicators and community activists. There will be 4 main phases.

  1. Foundations: a series of programs to build a basic foundation of knowledge on the current state of affairs on wildlife, nature and conservation efforts in Cambodia.

  2. Leadership Skills: practical skills for young conservation leaders in project management, administration, web design, graphic design, photography and video, lesson planning and PowerPoint, public speaking, grant-writing and fundraising, marketing, social media management, G-suit and more.

  3. Field Expeditions: a series of Nature Discovery Expeditions to learn some real-world wildlife science and monitoring techniques and put new skills to the test in the field, alongside local and foreign wildlife experts from many different fields.

  4. Student Project: students will conclude the program by working with their team to put together a public outreach, education, media or training workshop with support from Fauna in Focus.
