Building bridges for collaborative action in environmental education amongst conservation NGOs in Madagascar

In August, the Global Environments Network (GEN) announced the five projects that are being awarded with seed funding this year. Aina Brias Guinart, a GESA 2018 participant from Spain, developed the project Building bridges for collaborative action in environmental education amongst conservation NGOs in Madagascar. Through this project, she seeks to increase the chances of success of their environmental education activities and of biodiversity conservation in general through positive collaborations.

Madagascar is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. Unfortunately, there are many endemic lemur species that are threatened in Madagascar, alongside many other fauna and flora. Education is often claimed as a long-term solution for biodiversity conservation. In fact, many NGOs are using it as a tool to gain support for conservation in Madagascar. However, based on interviews carried out from August to October 2019, there is a lack of coordination among these organisations. This represents not only an economical loss, but also a loss of skills and expertise.

This project aims to tackle the lack of collaborative action in environmental education. A two-day workshop will be held to encourage conservation NGOs to share their knowledge and expertise, and to learn from each other. In addition to this, the workshop will lay the groundwork for a future partnership amongst the conservation NGOs.
