Evaluation of environmental awareness-raising activities at wetland sites

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

We spend a lot of time in our professional and voluntary capacities working to increase awareness through environmental education. But do we know how effective these activities are in leading to positive environmental changes? Evaluation often is forgotten at the end of a project, but it is an essential part of improving our future work.

This webinar will use practical, easy to use examples of how to evaluate, based on 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.

Introductory Remarks

  • Chris Rostron,  Wetland Link International, UK.


  • Ethel Wilkerson, Manomet. (USA): Building practical evaluation techniques into your project.
  • Susan Bonfield, Environment for the Americas. (USA): Evaluating the needs or minority ethnic communities to encourage access to protected natural areas.
  • Sebastián Saiter / Ricardo Matus, Patagonian Ecological Association. (Punta Arenas, CHILE): Tres Puentes wetland, valuation of a natural classroom for conservation. 

Interactive Discussion

The last segment of the webinar will host an interactive discussion where you are invited to share your experiences in evaluation of projects.
