The final program in FAIC's Social Justice and Conservation series is the Creating a 21st Century Conservation Ethics Framework workshop, taking place online on March 11. This interactive workshop will allow participants to further evaluate conservation's ethical framework through a critical lens. Participants will be led through discussions of topics brought up in the Social Justice and Conservation webinar series such as how choices conservators make regarding neutrality, decolonization, communities, and public monuments have real effects on people. The facilitator will help participants reimagine what a more equitable conservation field could look like if we included marginalized communities and recognized our own biases. Participants will leave with tools that can be applied to their own practice and tips on how to educate their co-workers and clients on the topics that were discussed, thereby also helping to further disseminate the knowledge. The workshop will take place on Zoom and captions will be available for those who choose to use them.
