NERC Community for Engaging Environments Training

Wytham Woods, Oxfordshire

On behalf of all partners of the recently-funded £1.3m NERC Communities for Engaging Environments, Earthwatch are pleased to invite applications from all NERC-funded early career researchers to apply for a 5-day training focusing on community centred approaches to environmental research.

Community centred research goes beyond traditional one-sided public engagement by seeking to create collaborations with communities and encourage community participation in the research process. Participants will gain knowledge and understanding of a range of public and community engagement practices such as community-grounded listening, capturing stories, and inspiring hands on engagement through Citizen Science. Sessions will be delivered by leading experts in the fields of environmental science and community and stakeholder engagement. Please see the attached for further details of the programme and how to apply.

In addition to the £100 cost, participants will be expected to cover their own travel expenses to and from the training site.

Accommodation and meals will be provided.

All applications are to be submitted online by 12 midnight 14th July 2019 via this link.

If you have any questions regarding the training or application process you can send all queries to Katherine McGavin at Earthwatch.
