Connecting wetland centres across the world

5th Wetland Link International Americas Webinar

5th WLI Americas Webinar:

Evaluation of environmental awareness-raising activities at wetland sites

Wednesday 25th October 2017 – 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. EDT

Student Field Studies

Webinar Overview: We spend a lot of time in our professional and voluntary capacities working with local communities, wetland practitioners and private sector partners to increase awareness through environmental education and other activities.  But do we know how effective these activities are in leading to positive environmental changes in both individual behavior and conservation action at the site? 

Just as importantly, can we demonstrate this to participants, funders and project partners so they can see how our activities are influencing behavior and resulting in improvements in wetland protection or other environmental outcomes.  Evaluation often is forgotten at the end of a project, but it is an essential part of improving our future work, for better outcomes for our own organizations and networks.

This webinar will use practical, easy to use examples of how to evaluate, based on tried and tested techniques from partners across the Americas.  The webinar will be available in both English and Spanish, and will include time for discussion after the presentations.
