In March 2020 Mind the Gap once again had the great pleasure of working with Dr Jen Solomon and the postgraduate students in Colorado State University’s masters of conservation leadership (CLTL) program. This was the third time Scott had delivered a week-long natural resources conflict management course at CLTL. As part of Mind the Gap’s core training offerings, the course focused on practical skills such as conflict management styles, communications, stakeholder analysis, conflict mapping, managing stress, negotiations and more.
A big thank you to Jen, and the superb participants on the conflict management short course, for their great presentations, insights and shared learning. Our very best wishes to the students as they take these skills and their other learning from their master’s coursework into their upcoming applied capstone projects – we know they will do important work for their environmental conservation partner organisations.
