Leadership Camp for Sustainable Forests: An Experiential Field-Based Learning with Local Communities
This course focuses on the importance of leadership in the context of sustainable forests at the landscape level. Participants interact with the local Karen community in the village and amongst themselves to assess and strengthen their leadership styles and capacities. Using the “learning by doing” approach, participants undergo a series of forest-based landscape challenges that will strengthen their leadership qualities to bring about positive social change in the landscape. Mr. Preecha Siri, the 2013 United Nations' Forest Hero, and other member of the Karen community will be key resource persons in this training.
